Ausangate trek

Another very high altitude trek of 4700 to 5200 mts. We are pros at sleeping and walking at these altitudes now.
This is a sacred mountain range to the Andinos. We had mixed weather with 2 days of intermittent heavy falls of snow. Then it cleared perfectly for our treks over the high passes.
Stunning coloured lakes, glaciers, and picturesque scenery.
Also some tiny interesting communities where we bought some beautifully hand spun, knitted and natural vegetable died products in the softest pure alpaca.
We finished with some hot thermal springs.
Next stop the jungle of Manu UNESCO world heritage biosphere. Out poor tired bodies need this rest.
