Mount Ausangate and nearby lagoons, such as Sibinacocha, were important in Inca mythology; these lagoons were once frozen and, due to global warming, the water was diluted until it reached the Amazon.
The Ausangate Trek 6 days is a very special alternative as we will have the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular snow-capped “Apus” of Ausangate (6,372m/20900ft altitude), as well as breathtaking mountain scenery, authentic local Andean villages, relaxing hot springs and turquoise lagoons.
This trek continues to offer the most spectacular views of this sacred Andean mountain before reaching the impressive Sibinacocha lagoon, leaving the crowds of tourists behind and entering an almost natural area where you can truly commune with nature.
This Ausangate Trek ends in Phinaya, a small and remote local community with only horses and bicycles as means of transportation. An unforgettable route for mountain trekking lovers, or for those who are looking for something different and away from the increasingly popular and traditional Ausangate trek
The hike begins in a small village Tinqui (sometimes written Tinki), 100 km from Cusco. It is very easy to get there by public bus from Cusco. The bus departs from Terminal Paradero Livitaca (easy to find on Google Maps), which is near the Coliseo Cerrado, a modern stadium. The ticket costs 10 Soles/US$3, and takes about 2.5 hours.
Many hikers find it more convenient to leave the planning and logistics in the hands of an experienced company that knows the area.
