Llama Trek Ausangate Sibinacocha

EXPEDITION LLAMA TREK CUSCO AUSANGATE - SIBINACOCHA 7D/6N

ITINERARY

DAY 1: CUSCO - TINQUI

From Cusco we will travel east over a high pass to the traditional highland town of Ocongate. Just beyond the town is Tinqui, the trailhead for the Vilcanota Range. We will camp by the Mapoche River at 3,800 m/ 12,464'.
L/D

DAY 2: TINQUI - COMERCOCHA

With llamas carrying the camp gear and personal equipment, we will climb steadily through rolling hills dotted with herds of llamas and alpacas. The snows of Nevado Ausangate (6,374 m/20,906') dominate the skyline directly ahead of us. We will eat lunch by hot springs at the hamlet of Pacchanta, and then continue climbing to camp in a pasture by Qomercocha Lake (4,570 m/15,000').
B / L / D

DAY 3 : PACCHASPATA 

We will trek past glacial tarns and isolated shepherds' huts toward the magnificent Pacchaspata Pass (5,050 m/16,560'). The trail follows a moraine above a glacier that flows down from the snow-covered peaks east of our route. On most treks we see troops of vicuñas (the wild, graceful relative of the llama) amid the rugged scree and glacial ice. We will trek beneath the towering west face of the Jatunjampa peaks. Continuing down the valley, a new vista opens up of the south face of Nevado Ausangate. We will continue down the gentle valley and then turn up a side valley to camp near Hacienda Quilleta (about 4,400m/ 14,430'), below Condor Pass.
B / L / D

DAY 4 : SIBINACOCHA

We will climb steadily to reach the summit of Condor Pass at 5,100 m/16,728'. We will traverse a plateau until we reach the head of Sibinacocha Lake, a glacial lake some 15 km in length and 2 km wide. Flamingos may be seen along the shore. Save for the occasional stone shepherd's hut; there is no sign of population in this vast valley.
B/L/D

DAY 5 : CCASCAMACOCHA

We will hike around the head of the lake and work our way eastward into another valley of even more sublime beauty. Our destination is Ccascamacocha, a smaller lake with a fascinating concentration of high altitude Andean birds. We will observe giant coots, which build up piles of mud in the shallows to make their nests, pairs of Huallata (Andean geese), ducks, and more flamingos. Several Quechua families have permanent homes by the lakeshore where they tend enormous herds of alpacas.
B /L / D

DAY 6 : YAYAMARY 

The highlight of the trek is today's optional scramble up Cerro Yayamari, a 5,500 m  snow-covered peak in the center of this breathtaking panorama of lakes and glaciated summits.
B / L / D

DAY 7 : YAYAMARY - CUSCO

Today, we will hike out to the southern end of Sibinacocha, the terminus of a new road, where our vehicle awaits.  After we load up, we will return to Cusco and to your hotel.
