Choquequirao – Vilcabamba – Macchu Picchu 10d/9n

Trek through Choquequirao to the last capital and refuge of the Incas – Vilcabamba has it all – ruins, adventure and spectacular scenery of snow capped mountains. This is a true adventure that takes place in a wonderful untouristed landscape. After two days we arrive at the Choquequirao ruins – perched high on a spur above the Apurimac canyon. From here we venture into what is little visited territory, descending to the Rio Blanco and then on up to the Inca ruins at the Victoria mines. We continue to the isolated village of Yanama, from where the climb to the highest point of the trip – Choquecatarpo Pass – starts. This is a spectacular 4600 metre pass, which is surrounded by snow capped peaks has the added bonus of some special Inca paving en route. From Choquecatarpo we descend to Huancacalle, a charming village in the region of Vilcabamba.

Ausangate trek to Sibinacocha 7d/6n

If you are looking for an unforgettable, adventurous and challenging trek in the untouristed part of Andes this trek is for you! This very special trek takes you alongside the spectacular snow-capped “Apu” of Ausangate (6.372m/20900ft) the highest mountain in the South of Peru. It takes you over mountain passes, through awesome mountain scenery, authentic Andean villages, hot springs and turquoise lakes. This alternative route to the classical circuit around Mount Ausangate still offers the most spectacular views of this sacred Andean mountain before it deviates towards the impressive Sibinacocha Lagoon (4950m) – the highest large lagoon in Peru, leaving tourist crowds behind and entering an almost uninhabited area where you can truly commune with nature. The hike ends in Phinaya, a small and remote Andean community with just horses and bicycles as sole transportation means.

Ausangate comfort 6d/5n

The Ausangate trek offers some of the most wonderful scenery in the whole of the Cusco area, with many high mountain birds and wildlife and also glaciers and high alpine lakes. It’s also one of the toughest in the region with two high passes over 5,000 metres/ 16000 feet. As we draw closer to Ausangate mountain (6,380 metres/ 20 926 feet) we become increasingly impressed and can understand fully why the ancient Incas held this spectacular mountain in such high regard. During the whole Ausangate circuit we pass local villages where the people dress in their typical attire and have opportunity to see many llamas and alpacas. This longer version of Ausangate Trek includes shorter daily hiking time (only 4-6 hours) and gives more time for side excursions to explore the area.
