Ausangate Mountain, also known as “Apu Ausangate”, was one of the most important deities of the Inca civilization —even now, centuries later, it is still revered by the Andean people, who respect its sacred status. This snow-capped peak stands at 6,372 meters above sea level and is part of the Andes mountain range. The hike to Ausangate is regarded as one of the most strikingly beautiful hikes in the Peruvian Andes. It is filled with impressive sights of snow-covered mountains, hot springs, multicolored lagoons, glaciers, llama and alpaca herd, picturesque Andean villages, and locals dressed in colorful traditional dresses.
The Ausangate tour is tough due to the altitude and icy climate, which are typical of this region. However, your effort will be rewarded by this riveting experience in the Andes in the South of Peru. If you are adventurous and you love high altitude trekking, this is the tour for you!
