Bring the best camera you can, as these landscapes are something to be cherished forever,lesser known to tourists, this gem of Ausangate has long been a sacred journey for people of the area, especially during the Qoyllurity Pilgrimage.
Ausangate is the towering, 6372m peak which dominates the skyline to the southeast of Cusco. It is the protector spirit mountain of the city and ranks highest in the pantheon of Apus, the living Mountain Gods worshipped by the people of the Peruvian Andes. As you trek around its snowy slopes, you will climb high mountain passes and visit remote Andean villages. The turquoise lakes and hot springs of this land are a generous gift from Pachamama, the Mother Earth. You will have the opportunity to give thanks to her through a choice of one of our Healing Workshop.
