The Cordillera Vilcanota is an impressive range of mountains, which include the massive Nevado of Ausangate (6,385m) (20,948ft) and three others over 6000m. It is excellent trekking country offering the traveler everything you could want: spectacular mountain scenery, snow-capped peaks, hot springs, turquoise lakes, glaciers, herds of llamas, and alpacas, picturesque villages and traditionally dressed Indians. Its also high, tough, and cold, so be prepared.
