Ausangate, Father of All Mountains, protector of surrounding mountain ranges, is about beautiful scenery, snow peaks, glaciers, vivid blue alpine lakes, and of course: The Rainbow Mountain. Also, on a clear night, witness THE most breathtaking starry sky you could ever imagine.

Walk en route among alpacas, llamas, wild vicuñas, and even a plethora of viscachas bouncing jovially along the path.
