Around 7 am you’ll be collected from your hotel. Heading south-east by the Interoceanic highway that goes to Puerto Maldonado, we pass through the town of Urcos
and within about 3 hours arriving at Ocongate, where you'll be able to purchase anything that you forget in Cusco.
Then taking a detour to Pacchanta, 45 minutes from Ocongate, in Pacchanta
we meet the muleteers and cook of the expedition. After lunch we start the hike 4 hours to the base camp, with impressive views of the main snow-capped Cusco region such as: Ausangate (6384 masl), Cayangate (6110 masl)
and others, always accompanied by llamas and alpacas.
Already at the base camp, the personal high mountain equipment (harnesses, crampons, ice axes, helmets, leggings, gloves) will have been delivered. Our high mountain guide will teach you the correct way of using the equipment, how to act on a glacier and have them ready for promotion.
