Itinerary of the 7 Lagoons Ausangate full day tour:

We start the seven Lagoons Ausangate tour with the pick up from your hotels in Cusco at 04:30 a.m., at 5:00 a.m. To then go to the community of “Pacchanta” which is located on the slopes of the snowy “Ausangate”.

It is reached by the new South interoceanic highway and deviating by a carriage trail, in approximately 3 hours from the city of Cusco.

Once in Pacchanta we will have breakfast and after finishing with the last preparations we will start the walk to see the 7 lagoons, after 2 hours of walking we will arrive at a viewpoint from where we will be able to appreciate the first lagoon known as the Pucacocha lagoon.

After a well-deserved photo session we will continue walking to see the second Patacocha lagoon, then the third Alqacocha lagoon, minutes later we will see the turquoise lagoons that are known as Qomercocha lagoon, finally we will see the Orco otorongo lagoon – This small lagoon, for its shape and surrounding landscape, has the shape and fur (spots) of an otorongo, a feline that inhabits the jungles of America.

Near the previous lagoon is the ‘china otorongo’ lagoon, which refers to the female of this American feline. The panoramic views of both lagoons are impressive.

They are ideal for taking pictures. Laguna Azul cocha will be the last of the circuit of the 7 lagoons, it has a dark blue coloration of its waters.

The beauty of this lagoon, as well as its surrounding mountainous landscape, is highly appreciated by tourists who often take pictures here.

Some of these Lagoons have a turquoise green tone in color, that is what makes them attractive, because the water coming down from the snow-capped mountains also brings with it pulverized minerals and finally ends up swimming in the waters,

Finally we will start the return journey for 2 hours until we reach Pacchanta where we will have lunch and then they will enjoy the hot springs.

After enjoying a relaxing bath, we will get ready to return to Cusco along the same interoceanic highway and we will arrive in Cusco at 7:00 p.m.
