A shorter alternative for people who do not want to do this trek in 5 or 6 days. Enjoy wonderful landscapes of the Andes touring the routes near the Vilcanota mountain range, you will have an impressive view of the highest mountain in Cusco and the most important since Inca times, the Ausangate, which has an altitude of 6385 meters above sea level. You can also visit the great rainbow mountain. A wonderful tour of the Ausangate and the Rainbow Mountain, in just two days.



04:00 am we will start the pickup from your hotel in order to start our trip. We will drive to the town of Tinke where we will take a road to the Upis town, here we will find our team of muleteers and horses, and we will also take a short rest.

We will begin our hike until Arapa Pass (4800 masl). Then we will border the snow-capped Ausangate to head towards Yanacocha, where we will have lunch. We will continue with the wonderful view of the snow-capped Ausangate, and we will ascend to the Puca Cocha pass, from here we will be able to observe all the snow-capped mountains of the Vilcanota mountain range, then we will descend towards the place of Ananta, here will be our camp.

Transport time: 3 hours and 30 minutes

Hiking Time: 8 Hours

Minimum height: 4400 masl

Maximum Height: 4930 masl

We will enjoy our delicious hot breakfast, and then we will start our hike to the Warmisaya pass (4985 masl), then we will descend to the Surinecocha lagoon and then again ascend to the Surina mountain pass that will ease the hike a bit, since from here it is an easier and flatter walk and it will give us the satisfaction of enjoying the snowy peak and the rainbow mountain where we will arrive very early. We will try to arrive before the tourists who do the normal 1-day tour arrive, so we can enjoy the mountain without many people.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)
