We’re up to number four on BestHike.com’s list of the Ten Best Hikes in the World, and so far it’s been an awesome list. I can’t wait to see what the top three are going to be, but for now, coming in at #4: Ausangate Circuit, Peru.
The Best Hike gang love this trek because of the spectacular views of the Peruvian glaciers, the light traffic on the trail, and the amazing hike around Ausangate massif. There are hot springs at the beginning and the end of the trail as well, and did I mention that it’s inexpensive? Lets not forget about the “thousands of alpacas” either!
Things to consider before going are the altitude, which can inflict AMS, the remote region means no rescues, and complete lack of creature comforts (plan ahead!), and cold weather. It can drop below freezing at night, and snow is a possibility nearly any time of year.
Looks like another winner. Whose ready to take a very long walk with me?
