You will be picked up from your hotel/hostal between 4:30 a.m. and 4.45 a.m. We will travel to the town of Tinke 3780 m.a.s.l (3 hours aprox). From here we will take a short-cut to the town of Pacchanta 4310 m.a.s.l (40 minutes aprox) where we will have breakfast and is also the starting point of our hike to the 7 lakes (6.5 km aprox).

The hike will take approximately 5 hours where we will visit the lakes of Azulqocha, Otorongo, Alqacocha, Q’omercocha and Patacocha 4740 m.a.s.l. During the hike you will see the magestic mountain of Ausangate 6380 m.a.s.l., as well as  native animals including alpacas, llamas and chinchilas. If we are lucky, we may even see condors!
