This photographic expedition takes us to Ausangate (20,945’), a beautiful peak in the breathtaking and pristine Cordillera Vilcanota near Cusco. This off the beaten track journey includes exploration of the Sacred Valley of the Inca and the beautiful city of Cusco and five days trekking through this seldom visited and amazing ecosystem accompanied by llamas and horses, supplied by local shepherds, that will carry your gear. Acclaimed Peruvian photographer Alex Kornhuber will help you hone your landscape photographic skills and understand the deep connection between the geography and the people who inhabit this beautiful region. You will stay in a series of “Tambos,” Andean lodges where your meals will be prepared by Peruvian chefs using local produce and ingredients. The landscapes and settings are extraordinary with color intensity only seen at high altitude, making for stunning landscape photographs.
