Day 1: Cusco - Tinki You leave the city of Cusco early in the morning. On the way you'll stop in Urcos to take some pictures of the colorful market. You then go on to Cattca, an agricultural and cattle raising community. After passing through Ausangate, you arrive In Tinki, where you sleep in a local lodge.
Day 2: Tinki - Pacchanta – Qomerqocha Lagoon After breakfast, you'll spend some time visiting the Tinki public school and give the kids presents. Then you leave Tinki and start a 2.5 hour walk towards Pacchanta, where you stop for lunch and also visit the natural hot springs. In the afternoon you continue the hike through a slight climb up the Pacchanta Valley, where llamas and alpacas live. When you reach Laguna Qomercocha, you will have a nice dinner and spend the night.
Day 3: Qomerqocha Lagoon – Yanamayo After breakfast you begin a four-hour hike to the first mountain pass of our trek, Abra de Q´ampa. You then descend towards the Ticllaqocha Lagoons, a beautiful group of small turquoise lagoons where you will have lunch. In the afternoon, you continue the hike for an additional two to three hours. You will reach Yanamayo, a beautiful valley shadowed by three beautiful peaks.
Day 4: Yanamayo – Condorpaso You leave the camp after breakfast and start a gradual climb up towards the Yanaqocha lagoon. In this area the soil is volcanic and varies from dark red to black. Moraines, which are evidence of glacial activitiy, can also be found in this area. You will traverse the Yanaqocha pass to discover a beautiful valley. An hour after the last mountain pass, you will arrive at the campsite Condorpaso.
Day 5: Condorpaso - Lake Sibinacocha After breakfast, you begin a two-hour climb up to the Abra del Condor pass, which is the highest point of our trek. Then you continue hiking for three hours. During that time, you will cross another mountain pass and descend into the valley of the source of Lake Sibinacocha. You will camp next to a lagoon where an impressive glacier stands and nourishes the lake. The lagoon boasts of its vast bio-diversity; you will be able to spot Andean coots, geese, and ducks.
Day 6: Source of Lake Sibinacocha – Ccascana On day six, you depart early for a three-hour long walk along the shores of the Lake until we arrive at the Yayamari community. Then you cross a pampa where we will likely see hundreds of llamas, alpacas and maybe even more vicuñas. The day ends at Abra Ccascana.
