5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is an utterly fantastic trek. The first day short and easy but the next rises slowly at first but then plummets upwards right on to the big toe of ausangate, and what a grand mountain this is, lording it over the second tambo. The start of the next Day is hard rising quick up to 15,000 m or more then meandering quietly to the third tambo. The scenery on the fourth day just beggars belief being to the front a multicoloured and textured landscape while to the back ausangate still sits kingly there.
The whole trip, booked at only five days notice went like clockwork. There were no hitches. The tambos are perfectly sited. Have wood burners and very comfortable beds with large wide duvets and blankets. The food was very varied and very good and the chefs, llama and horse men were brilliant? All in all a great trip at a great height with great people and recommendable for anyone with more than a modicum of fitness. ( all the guides spoke good English as well as French and were corectly cautious, having no hesitation in evacuating a sufferer from bad mountain sickness)

Thanks a lot for sharing your opinion, we are glad you liked the experience, we recommend to spend at least 3 days in Cusco before you do the trek, to avoid the mountain sickness, we hope to see you soon.

“Incredible experience with Andean Lodges!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Our trip to the Ausangate area with Andean Lodges was one of the most amazing experiences in my lifetime of travels. Every guide and employee we met was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, local, and experienced. The food on the trek was outstanding! Fresh, healthy, delicious, with surprises everyday. The lodges (tambos) were very clean and comfortable, with extra touches of unexpected comfort all week. And the trek!!!!!! Spectacular mountain views, challenging with the altitude, and beautiful scenery every turn. I would recommend Andean Lodges to anyone who LOVES adventure, culture, and history, and who is strong enough for the trek. Thank you for a perfect experience!

“Amazing Ausangate Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

It was an amazing experince, the whole trip was great, we began with a conftable trip around the Vilcanota Valley (cool views) then we have lunch made by the local people of Chillca's Town. During the following days we hiked around the Ausangate, you can get great shots, the views are awesome. Totally recommended.
