We just completed our fantastic trek around Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain, and I couldn’t be more impressed with Hike Ausangate, and our fantastic guide Cirilo. Our initial investigations and inquiries were answered promptly and thoroughly by Edver, satisfying our concerns. Cirilo is an excellent guide, and not limited to hiking, he has guided mountaineering trips to the summit of Ausangate! He has 20 years of experience guiding, and is quite skilled at evaluating his clients, motivating without being pushy, encouraging when travel is hard, honest and accurate when detailing when and where the next goal will be achieved. Cirilo enjoys cooking, and we enjoyed hot meals three times a day, with a different entree every meal! He has a fantastic team to help out, and it is obvious he enjoys his work and team, as there is always laughter in their daily activities! He has an excellent network of people, and he knows everyone on the trail, ensuring that all get something to eat at mealtime. In conclusion, for experienced hikers and trekkers, a trip with Hike Ausangate and Cirilo is a luxury experience!
