Our pickups starts from 4:00 to 4:30 hrs. in their respective lodgings, to direct us in the direction of Urcos, bordering the Vilcanota river to reach our destination that will be the community of "PACCHANTA". The community of "PACCHANTA" 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 clothing and use their meat as a source of protein. Native potatoes, fresh or traditionally converted into chuño and moraya, provide the carbohydrates they need to fight against cold and physical exertion.
In this community is where we will receive our nutritious breakfast (7:30 A.M), then venture into the middle of the Andes to visit "7 beautiful lakes of Ausangate", to start walking 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 Andean mountain range, surrounded by wonderful fauna and vegetation, it will be a route of 14 km . approximately (5 hrs.)
We will return to the community of "PACCHANTA" to enjoy some enriching hot springs and after that our lunch, to return to Cusco, after this wonderful experience.
