If you are short on time and interested in a short, challenging, and high altitude trek in the Cusco area, our Quelccaya Express route is a gorgeous option! This breathtaking route begins and ends at C’ochas, following along the expansive Quelccaya Ice Cap, the largest glaciated area of the tropics. This is a remote and little-known route, which offers solitude, physical challenge, and high altitude, panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers.

Quelccaya Trek Itinerary

Day 1 : Cusco-C’ochas-Bajo Huancanay

We will meet you at your Cusco hotel early in the morning for departure to C’ochas, the departure point of out trek. The drive will last approximately five hours, with the last three hours following a remote dirt road. Upon arrival we will break for lunch before beginning our trek across a pretty valley filled with grazing llamas, alpacas, and multi-colored pools fed by glacial melting. We will cross a river, then begin a steady climb to Bajo Huancanay (4,755 msnm), our camp for the night.

Day 2 : Bajo-Alto Huancanay

After breakfast we will continue the ascent to Alto Huancanay (5150 msnm), and the current border of the Quelccaya Ica Cap. We will explore these impressive glaciers during the day, before returning to camp at Bajo Huancanay in the evening.
Duration: Depends on your interests and physical fitness
