Activity description
Come and join our hiking tour to one of the best ecotourism destinations par excellence - Peru. Incredible adventures awaits you on our 7 day tour.


Peru and the Cordillera de Vilcanota


Peru is a country that surprises everyone who is looking for new adventures and incredible places to discover. Many tourists come here every year for the incredible landscapes and rich culture inherited from the Incas. Its best known monument is Machu Picchu, but you can discover many more in close surroundings.

Los Andes are rich in high altitude mountains of more than 6000 meters. The Cordillera de Vilcanota, in the south of the country, offers dreamlike landscapes with glaciers and lagoons of exceptional beauty.

Among its mountains, the highest (and the fifth highest mountain in the country) is the Ausagante of 6,384 meters, only 100 kilometers away from Cusco and with more than 400 glaciers. It is an ideal place for all hikers.

We offer you this special tour to thoroughly explore the Cordillera de Vilcanota and other places that will surely fascinate you.


A 7 DAY TOUR


Day 1: Cusco - Tinki

We will catch a bus and leave the city of Cusco and drive along the road Cusco / Puerto Maldonado in the direction of Tinki. On the way, we will stop at Urcos (an important crossroad for bus routes) to see some photographs of the colorful market. Then we will go to Cattca, an agricultural and livestock community, where we can appreciate the spectacular views of the region.

Lastly, we will pass through Ocongate, the capital of the district with the same name (only half an hour away from our destination). After a 6 hour trip we will arrive to Tinki, where we will spend the night in our camp.


Day 2 Tinki: - Pacchanta - Laguna Qomerqocha

We will start the day with a delicious breakfast. We will visit the public school of Tinki to meet the children of the neighboring communities and give them useful and highly appreciated gifts such as school material.

Later on, a walk of two and a half hours to Pacchanta (4100m / 13451ft) awaits us where we will stop for lunch. Pacchanta is a rural community with a lot of hot springs. Take the opportunity to enjoy a good swim while gazing at the breathtaking views of Ausangate Mountain.

In the afternoon we will continue our hike and climb the Pacchanta valley, observing llamas and alpacas, until we reach the beautiful lagoon of Qomercocha, our camping place for theday. Our campsite is located in a spectacular location with stunning panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains of Ausangate, Santa Catalina, Maria Huamantiqlla, Pucapunta and Colquecruz.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included.


Day 3: Qomerqocha laguna - Yanamayo

We will have breakfast and depart at 7:00 am. We will walk for four hours towards the first mountain pass of our hike, the Abra de Q'ampa (5000 m / 16404 ft). Then we will descend to the lagoons of Ticllaqocha, a beautiful cluster of turquoise lagoons where we will have lunch.

In the afternoon, we will continue our trek for another 2 to 3 hours until we reach Yanamayo, where we will set up our camp in an impressive valley with views of the great peaks of Tres Picos, Colquecruz and Pucapunta.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included.


Day 4: Yanamayo - Condorpaso

After the breakfast we will leave the camp and begin a gradual ascent to Yanaqocha or "Laguna Negra", which is named after the dark color of its waters. In this area we can appreciate a volcanic soil coloured in dark red and black, as well as the moraines, which are a living proof of the previous presence of glaciers in this region.

We will go through the mountain pass of Yanaqocha (5050 m / 16568 ft) to discover an amazingly beautiful valley with mountains of colors, three spectacular lagoons and the presence of llamas and alpacas. We will cross this valley towards the direction of our next mountain pass at 5100 m / 16732 ft. From this point, an additional hour of walking will bring us to Condorpaso and our next camp. It is very close to the mountain pass of the same name that will be our challenge for the next day.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included.


Day 5: Condorpaso - lake fountain of Sibinacocha

After breakfast we will ascend gradually for 2 hours through the valley that will take us through the mountain pass of Abra del Cóndor (5200 m / 17060 ft). From this stage, the highest point of our trek, we will enjoy spectacular views of the Vilcanota mountain range and the Sibinacocha lagoon and, with a bit of luck, we might see vicuñas.

Afterwards we will continue our trek for three hours, crossing another mountain pass, and then descending towards the valley of Lake Sibinacocha. We will camp next to the lagoon and very close to its source, where an impressive glacier rises that nourishes the lake with its turquoise waters that contrast with the dark blue color of the lagoon. This lagoon holds a rich biodiversity. We wil probably see the Andean coots, "Huallatas" or Andean geese, as well as the Andean ducks.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included.


Day 6: The spring of the lagoon of Sibinacocha - Ccascara

On the 6th day of our trip we will leave early and walk along the shores of the Sibinacocha lagoon for three hours until we will reach the community of Yayamari, next to the mountain of the same name. It is an magnificent rocky peak that dominates the lagoon in an impressive altitude of 5500m / 18044 ft above sea level.

Then, we cross a pampa, where we will probably see hundreds of llamas, alpacas and vicuñas.

Later on we will go to the Abra Ccascana at 5000m / 16404 ft, which will take us to the lagoon of the same name. Which will be our last camping spot? This place is surrounded by impressive snow-capped peaks of Montura and Chumpi and inhabited by small rural communities. It is possible that we will have an opportunity to observe "Huallatas" or Andean geese.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included.


Day 7: Ccascara - Phinaya - Cusco

We will have breakfast and leave Ccascana towards the direction of Phinaya during a three and a half hour tour. Once we will get there we will have a delicious lunch. Phinaya is a small Andean community with a beautiful little church and no vehicles, except for bicycles and horses. In the afternoon, we will return to Cusco where we will arrive after dark.

Breakfast and lunch will be included.
