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.
