The Peaks of Cusco & Sacred Valley

The Peaks of Cusco: Considered within the 3 giant peaks of Cusco, the snowy Veronica is one of the most important mountains of the Cusco region, even though its summit does not reach 6000, its constancy in the technical aspect of the normal route makes this expedition a committed ascent its proximity to the jungle does not ensure good weather conditions but an impressive landscape.

The Lares Valley hiking has different routes that will be chosen depending on the kilometers that you want to travel, all these options cross by steps of more than 4,000 meters and then descend to the sacred valley which makes them ideal options for acclimatization, the trekking of Lares will consolidate our acclimatization and allow us to cross the Urubamba & Vilcanota Mountain Ranges.

That’s an insane, unforgettable trekking experience with your team! We are so satisfied with their professionalism and enthusiasm! Milton did a great job, he is an expert, and he took good care of us! He is so passionate about his love of hiking & trekking. Along the trek, he shared his knowledge about everything, the Andeans, local languages, and community beliefs. Our cook was a wonder to us 🙂 He was so fun, friendly, and chilled. He knows how to cook; he is so passionate and his food is so delicious! The muleteer did his job great too, we all got along well, and we were very happy to have them with us on this amazing Ausangate trek. Thanks again for your team and your company and for giving us such an unforgettable experience on this one trek!

Andy (UK) - South Perú Expedition

diciembre 16, 2023

Unu Raymi tours helped me organize a three-week vacation in Peru. This allowed me to visit many of the country’s most important sites but with the flexibility to add some additional places to my itinerary. The planning was excellent in that all tours, transfers and hotel arrangements were very smooth and the various contacts were very helpful, considerate and professional. Although getting around Peru and seeing all the fabulous sites made for a quick vacation with lots of traveling, it was worth it as there is so much to see. The standards of the hotel, food and tour seemed to be very good value for money, within the budget, and I received plenty of extra guidance in planning my own aspects of the trip and support when an unexpected medical issue arose.

The website has interesting information and guidance that helped me plan accordingly; I think this could develop, although James was very helpful in helping me plan the vacation, including travel and packing considerations. Overall, it was a memorable few weeks for me.

Bjorn (NOR) - Mt Vinicunca Trek (Rainbow Mountain), Ausangate, Perú

diciembre 16, 2023

We did a three-day trek. Ausangate is very beautiful with high mountains, glaciers, pretty lakes, and these colors. We came to Rainbow Mountain before the hordes of tourists came. And also, time to see the Red Valley, which is beautiful as well. It was like a private tour. The cook, the guide and the horseman served us well, nice and a lot of food 🙂

Boris (USA) - Mt Ausangate Circuit Trek, Ausangate, Perú

diciembre 16, 2023

I am absolutely happy with the trek, there was so much to see! As always there are some options where to go and what to do. After a brief moment of thinking, I made a decision and with the blessing of my spouse, booked the Ausangate Trekking Tour.

I loved. What’s not to love about this? The mountain peaks, the lakes and waterfalls, the unusual flora and fauna… It is difficult, I assure you, to combat altitude sickness, but it is manageable and with proper care it soon passes. Every step and angle is different and the whole place is pure magic. I have met several good people along my way. The organizer Lider and my guide Javier are forever in my heart.

Thank you, thank you, and once again thank you so much guys, you took a huge load of planning off my shoulders. I am in love with the Andes and I want to see and experience more, that’s for sure!

Namgyen (VNM) - Ausangate Trek & Climb, Ausangate, Perú

diciembre 16, 2023

Ausangate! This tour was one of the best adventures I had in my life. Overall, this was a thrilling trek, one that tested my limits, left me humbled, and helped me define who I am. I recommend it to any adventure seekers!

This tour was one of the best adventures I had in my life. The guides Eduardo and Herman are friendly, and knowledgeable and were always checking on me since we were at more than 16,000 altitudes. They know the terrain very well and are giving me history and geography lessons along the way. We shared many laughs and stories. Our mountain cook, Jaime, prepared delicious meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and always offered me a hot drink. Pedro, our rider, always had my tent ready at the next campsite! The sites in and around Ausangate are stunning. There are far fewer hikers on this trail than the others, so if you’re looking for peace, this is the hike to take. We had to start very early some days and then. The reward was seeing the crimson sky and the sunrise. Overall, this was an exciting hike, one that tested my limits, humbled me, and helped me define who I am. I recommend it to any adventure seeker!

diciembre 16, 2023

I would recommend their services without hesitation. I had a multi-week journey in Peru and enlisted the help of Unu Raymi to help me plan my first visit to South America. I had some very specific things I wanted to see, and James was very patient in helping me create an itinerary that included everything that was on my bucket list and more.
