This is a remote trek but the long car journey was worth it. The trek takes you up close and personal with the Ausangate mountains. The facilities are basic and the community is only just getting set up for tourists but it is unspoilt and feels very authentic. Our guide, Bryan, was knowledgeable and passionate about the area. He made our trek a special one. We even managed a quick dip in the local hot springs which eased aching muscles.
