Day 1

The trip begins in Ollantaytambo, where we will take private transportation and pick you up from your hotel for the trip to tastalluc near the pass of the Málaga pass. The tour of this valley is impressive: Inca terraces, waterfalls and traditional Andean agricultural practices make up the landscape as we ascend almost 1000 meters down the valley to the point where we started the ascent. The journey takes about forty minutes.

we will begin our walk. Using helpers to assist in the steep climb to our campsite for the night, we will enjoy the route and accompany the views of the mountains and glaciers of the Andes. Our camp is next to the glacier, very beautiful and at an altitude of approximately 4000 meters, also a bit cold! Depending on the time of day and the pace of the group, we will camp just below the final step, or on the other side. The pass itself is part of the Continental Divide line of Peru and has exceptional views in all directions. We use only high quality camping equipment to guarantee your comfort. Tents, sleeping bags

Day 2

After a night of sleep under the stars and a breakfast, we will start the last climb and climb the steep glacier with incredible views of ice caves, up to the pass or, if we did it the night before, we will start the long descent about 3 to 5 hours

The air becomes noticeably thicker and warmer as we meet the locals who take their animals out to graze, a sure sign that we are approaching the classic Andean village also known for its traditional fabrics and cultural practices. Continuing down, we will be a stop for lunch on the way, before

Arriving at our camp we spent the night in a camp a little warmer. . While you’re there, we’ll prepare a barbecue of chicken, potatoes and fresh vegetables that will surely reach the place.
