Andean Lodges

Andean Lodges

140

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, situated East of the city of Cusco – PERU.

This initiative offers a lodge to lodge hiking experience at an altitude of over 4,800 m. above sea level, with incredible landscapes, a great variety of flora and fauna, and the warmth of the communities inhabitants, which will turn your adventure in the Andes, into an unforgettable experience. All of that is combined with the comfort of four mountain lodges, strategically located in front of different faces of the mount and operated in a sustainable way, taking care of environmental aspects.

Thanks to the contribution in labor, land value and construction of one of the lodges, the communities of Chillca and Osefina are partners with 20% of the company's shares. Benefits generated are used to improve their inhabitant's education and life conditions. In the meantime, 24 full time and over 60 part-time jobs were created, and a market for alpaca meat and end products, such as traditional textiles made by local women weavers, was opened.

This is how respect for our people's culture, values and idiosyncrasy. A combination of responsible tourism, excellent lodging and trekking services, providing the communities with development and wellbeing alternatives.

Therefore, we invite you to be part of this amazing adventure, the Andean Lodges experience.
