Día 1: Cusco – Tinke (3950 m.) – Pacchanta (4200 m.) – Cusco

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Cusco around 4:30 a.m to 5:00 a.m and we will then drive for about two hours to the village of Tinki. From there, we will drive for around one hour more to get to the starting point of our hike, where we will have breakfast. After breakfast, we will start our hike. We will hike for about one and a half hours gently uphill to get to the first lake. From that point, we will be really close to the other six lakes, and the way will get easier as it will go mostly downhill or flat. We will have plenty of time to take photos of the lakes and glaciers. After the hike, we will have lunch and you will have the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing moment in the thermal baths with a great view of the Ausangate. We will then make our way back to Cusco, which should take around three hours.
