The 7 Lakes (or 7 Lagunas) Tour is a moderately challenging trek that takes you through scene after scene of unparalleled views of Mt. Ausangate or Ausangate Mountain, the tallest mountain of the region of Cusco where Machu Picchu is found. This Ausangate trek in Peru immerses you in glory of the Andean mountains with varied terrain, lakes in all shades of blue, alpaca sightings, and glowing snow peaks. What’s amazing about these lakes is all the different shades of blue that you’ll observe them in due to the natural minerals in the area. Reward yourself at the end of the hike with a dip in the hot springs at the foot of the mountain.
