"Cusco - Pacchanta - 7 Lagoons - Pacchanta - Cusco"
Our pickups begin at 4:30 am. From their hotels, to then head our destination that will be the community of "PACCHANTA". It is located on the slopes of the snowy "Ausangate", at 4200 masl. Its inhabitants, who are dedicated to the raising of alpacas and the cultivation of native tubers, are all expert weavers. With the fiber of the alpaca they make their clothes and use their meat as a source of protein. Native potatoes, fresh or traditionally turned into chuño and moraya, provide the carbohydrates they need to fight cold and physical exertion.
In this community it is where we will receive our nutritious breakfast (7:30 A.M), then venture into the middle of the Andes mountain range to visit “7 beautiful Ausangate lagoons”, at the beginning we will walk about 5 to 6 km. to visit the first lagoon (1:30 hrs approx.), after that we will continue this fascinating adventure visiting other lagoons, perched in the middle of the Andes mountain range, surrounded by wonderful fauna and vegetation, it will be a 10 km tour . approximately (5 hrs.)
We will return to the community of “PACCHANTA” to enjoy the hot springs and after that our lunch, to return to Cusco, after this wonderful experience.
