This trek is a shorter alternative to the normal Ausangate circuit trek. The Front Range Trek gives you impressive views of Mount Ausangate and Callangate while on a rarely traveled trail. You can experience all the highlights of the Vilcanota mountain range, including the thermal baths in Pacchanta. To finish, we camp by the large turquoise Lagoon Singrenacocha, more impressive than any lagoon on the normal circuit trek.

Vilcanota Circuit Trek (7 days / 6 Nights)

Duration: 7 Days / 6 Nights
Level: Beginner

On this rugged trek you explore deeply into the remote Vilcanota mountain range. Our trail circles the 20,000ft mountains anchoring the center of the range, instead of just Ausangate like the normal trek. This route is longer than the normal trek but better because we get far off the beaten path. You hike between the big glaciers of the range, and visit the most impressive lagoons: Sibinacocha and Singrenacocha. You will see vicuñas and many bird species that are not seen on the normal Ausangate trek. The Vilcanota Trek is similar to the Huayhuash Trek in length and beauty.

You can combine this trek with easy climbing peaks like Campa (5,500m) or Chumpe (6,110m).

Our compadre Luis Crispin lives in the picturesque village of Pacchanta, nestled at the foot of the high Andes mountains. His family is our team of locals who will take you with their horses on the trail. Another highlight of this route is to enjoy a bath in the the thermal springs at the start and the end of the trek. Don’t miss this timeless landscape!
