Mt. Ausangate MTB Expedition

8 days


This is quite possibly the greatest MTB expedition in the world! We’ll bike around Mt. Ausangate (6,380 m; 20,931 ft.), crossing over three mountain passes that hover at more than 5,000 m (16,404 ft.) of elevation! Along the way, we’ll make camp alongside reinvigorating hot springs and enchanting turquoise-colored lagunas.

The Mt. Ausangate Circuit is more than a trail. It’s a butterflies-in-your-stomach, lick-your-lips challenge that won’t be denied. The views, flora and fauna, and local communities encountered along the way are one-of-a-kind, the types of experiences and places that are truly unforgettable and unattainable anywhere else in this world.

Whereas our Full Day, Multi-Day, and Package Rides detail the level of difficulty of each ride, it should be understood that the nature of Peru Biking’s expeditions is always Extreme. The weather is unpredictable. Meals and camps are basic. Bike portage is more frequent. Fatigue is more common. And in general, the unknown is more unknown…
