Ausangate Traverse, Peru
8 Jan 5 cass-gilbert Latin America
The Ausangate Traverse can hardly claim to be the longest of bikepacks in Peru. But it is, arguably, the most beautiful. Skirting the mountain's south eastern flank, it offers some of the most dramatic vistas in the Peruvian Andes, and makes for a perfect compliment to explorations around the ancient Incan capital of Cusco, and nearby Machu Picchu.
