Andean Lodges is the association between two high andean communities, Chillca and Osefina, and peruvian investors. Together we have created a hiking route around the Mount Ausangate,

The circuit starts one hundred kilometers east of the city of Cusco, on a 5-day trek around the Apu Ausangate, hiking between 3,900 and 5,200 m.a.s.l. (12,800 and 17,000 ft.), along a 40 km trail, walking about 10 km daily, to get to one of our four confortable lodges.

As the sole operator of this route, we would like to show you how we provide this life changing experience, when you travel to our beautiful Peru and Cusco.

  • Foto de Chillca Lodge
Our first Lodge is located in the Uyuni Pampa, at an altitude of 4,368 m.a.s.l. (14,331 ft.). It is a valley with meadows, furrowed by the ice-cold waters of the Quencomayo River, and a grazing place for a great number of alpacas from the community of Chillca. From the lodge, there is a privileged view of the snow-capped Mount Jatun Jampa; an Apu (Sacred Mountain) visible at the end of the valley.

Our second Lodge is the highest in the world, with 4,814 m.a.s.l. (15,797 ft.), and the closest to the Apu Ausangate, on one side of the moraine and climbing route. This is why this lodge is used as the base, to climb up the Ausangate. Not only does the lodge offer a spectacular view towards the snow-capped mountain, but, it also is surrounded by rocks among which lives a great quantity of wild vizcachas, accustomed to human presence.
  • Foto de Anantapata Lodge
Anantapata is situated at an altitude of 4,750 m.a.s.l. (15,584 ft.), at the top of the Alcatauri Gorge; a bofedal (Marshland) area, where the alpacas graze. The gorge is embraced by the snow-capped Mount Tacusiri, to the North, and the Ausangate, to the East. This comfortable lodge is different from the other three, as it was built with the Chillca community´s own funds. So, to us, it is the most important one, since it is a testimony of the communities´ effort, to share their culture and landscapes, as well as proof of sustainable tourist development, in that High Andean area.
  • Foto de Hampococha Lodge
The Huampococha Lodge occupies a magical location, at an altitude of 4,800 m.a.s.l. (15,748 ft.). This lodge offers a panoramic view towards one of the most beautiful landscapes which encompasses the lagoon that bears the same name, and the snow-capped Mount of the Inca, meanwhile it rests at the foot of the Apu Callecalle´s foothills, the summit of which is a set of intrusive rock jagged blades that point up to the sky, and give it a beautiful and rough profile. Huampococha is the ideal place for the observation of constellations and to listen to the Apus´ myths, and those of the alpaca shepherds´ gods.
