This is quite possibly the greatest supported bikepacking trip in South America! We’ll bike around Mt. Ausangate (6,380 m; 20,931 ft.), several hours to the south of Cusco, 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.
It should be understood that the weather is unpredictable, camps are basic, bike portage is more frequent, fatigue is more common, and, in general, the unknown is more unknown…
