Ausangate trek details 3 days

During this expedition, we get involved with thelocals of the communities we visit. As it is a trekking adventure we choose to spend the night in adequate campsites that do not affect the care of the environment.

In the same way, when we consume camping we eat outdoors, surrounded by the immense nature; then we take care to save and collect all the solid waste and objects that we have used and put them in the corresponding deposits.

With this action we contribute to take care of nature and minimize the damages. We want your trekking experience in Ausangate to be sustainable and respectful with the environment.

In addition, our guide and assistant will be in charge of collecting garbage such as plastic bottles, bags or other objects ensuring that every step we take is respectful of nature. Ausangate awaits you, our route will take you to discover extraordinary landscapes!
