    IMPORTANT INFO :

    • While we expect the tour will run as the itinerary describes to Ausangate Trek 4 days. Participants should accept that there is the possibility of changes, being necessary liable to local conditions, e.g, strikes, natural disasters.
    • This tour is not recommended for children because they may have trouble walking, but if the child enjoys hiking at high altitudes, they can do it.
    • If you have medical problems, you should consult your doctor and indicate that you want to or are planning a hike in the Peruvian Andes and the height is 5040 m (16,400 ft) above sea level. If you have medication, you must bring it with you to continue your treatment.
    • The higher elevation also means colder, nearly freezing temperatures, so be prepared. If you decide to take a multi-day tour, make sure to wear very warm clothes.
    • You will spend every night in shelters.
    • Our third campsite is 40 minutes away from the Rainbow Mountain so We have a better chance to enjoy the Rainbow Mountain in solitude.
    • If you have altitude sickness symptoms, descend as quickly as you can. It’s nothing to mess around with.
    • Our guide always oxygen tanks which are important as you get over 5040 meters/16,500 feet above sea level! Not all travel agencies offer this, so this is definitely something to look out for when choosing the best Ausangate tour operator.
    • Make sure you are acclimatized to Cusco’s altitude before you set off on your hike to the Ausangate. This is by far the best insurance of a smooth and enjoyable trip. We recommend you spend at least 3 days in Cusco prior to the excursion.
    • batteries tend to die due to cold — keep them in your sleeping bag.
