Itinerary

Day 1 : Travel from Cusco to Chilca and begin trek

Visiting: Cusco/Chilca/Anantapata

In the early morning, we will pick you up from your hotel and begin our bus journey to the town of Chilca, where our trek begins. En route, we will make stops in the towns of Urcos, for a visit to a local market, and Checacupe, to see the colonial bridge and the Church of the Immaculate Conception. Upon our arrival in Chilca, we will begin our trek along a trail that brings us to Anantapata, the location of our lodge for the night. Once there, you can rest by the fireplace and take in the views of snowy Ausangate.

Day 2 : Half-day trek up to Vinicunca, with views of surrounding mountains, and return to Cusco

Visiting: Anantapata/Vinicunca/Cusco

We will wake early to begin our ascent of the colored mountain (5,000 meters above sea level). During the trek, we will observe beautiful countryside scenes and, if we are lucky, we will spot several South American camelids including llama and vicuņa. After approximately three hours of trekking, we will arrive at Vinicunca where you will be able to see the magnificent coloring of the mountain caused by eroded sedimentary rock. You will also be able to see the surrounding mountains, like Sarinini and the imposing snow-capped Ausangate. After enjoying the views from Vinicunca, we will begin our descent to our waiting vehicle that will take us back to Cusco.
