INTRODUCTION

The Cordillera Vilcanota is an impressive range of mountains which include the massive Nevado de Ausangate (6,385m) and three others over 6000m. It's excellent trekking country offering the traveller everything you could want: spectacular mountain scenery, snow-capped peaks, hot springs, turquoise lakes, glaciers, herds of llamas and alpacas, picturesque villages and traditionally dressed Indians. Its also high, tough and cold, so be prepared. This beautiful seven day circular trek starts and finishes at the small Andean village of Tinqui and takes you around the massif of Ausangate and over three high passes (two of them over 5000m).

It is essential to be properly acclimatized for this hike spending at least three days in Cusco (or equivalent altitude) before starting. Many tour operators provide a horse for each person to ride. Since many parts of the trail are steep, riders will need to dismount and walk with the horse for about 40% of the trek. Horses are also used for carrying all the equipment. If you are not confident on horseback then there are usually some 'trekking only' tours.
