The Llama trekking route is truly a breathtaking adventure from beginning to end. It starts by taking us through a valley filled with grazing Llamas and Alpacas. The ice capped peaks of Ausangate (6384 metres) loom over you, one of the most awe inspiring backdrops of the Peruvian Andes.
After a relatively gentle beginning we begin a steady climb to reach the first pass of 5000 metres. If you peer back, a turquoise laguna shines below Ausangate, a great excuse to take a few minutes and catch your breath! From here we drop down passing mountain top lagunas and more llamas before we make a final climb to reach the impressive Rainbow mountain (Vinicunca Montaña).
Words could never do this route justice! So here is a video to give you some idea of what to expect!
