ITINERARY

FULL DAYHIKE TO 7 LAKES – HOT POOLS OF PACCHANTA

Between 4:00 and 4:30 am, we will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco. We will take our transportation (approximately 3.5 hours) to Pacchanta, the local comnunity close to Apu Ausangate.

During our hike, we will enjoy the beautiful landscape of the high Andes Mountains, admiring the incredible scenery of the snow capped Ausangate Mountain. Our professional guide will share with us his knowledge about the history and fascinating facts. After our hike, we will return to the community of Pacchanta for lunch, and relax in the hot pools (optional) with breathtaking mountain views.

FAQ

Where are the 7 lagoons of Ausangate located?

The hike of the 7 Lagoons of Apu Ausangate starts in the Community of Pacchanta, which is a 3.5 hour drive away from Cusco at an altitude of 4,200 meters. The little village is right at the foot of the Ausangate Mountain!

When is the best time to trek to the 7 Lagoons of Ausangate?

We have two main seasons in the Andes Moutnains, the rainy season (November-March) and the dry season (April-October).

During the rainy, warmer season temperatures average around 15°C / 60°F during the day and 5°C / 40°F at night. However, these temperatures may feel a lot colder to you.

During the dry season the weather is sunny and clear, and on average 20° C / 70 °F during the day but much colder at night, around -3 °C / 26 °F.

How can I prepare for the hike and prevent altitude sickness?

The best way to prepare yourself for this trekking experiencee is easy: spend at least 2 to 3 days at a high-altitude place like Cusco, so your body gets used to the high altitude. If you have already been to a high altitude destination before arriving to Cusco, we still recommend you spend at least one full day in Cusco to rest, recuperate from your trip, and enjoy the beautiful views of the city before your trek.

Additionally, taking good care of your body helps deal with the extra pressures that altitude creates. We recommend you to eat healthy food, drink lots of water and stay away from alcohol. Chewing coca leaves, drinking coca tea helps to alleviate any discomfort associated with the altitude.
