I’m going to do a solo trek of the Ausangate circuit, solo meaning no arrieros, mules, etc. If you enjoy the freedom of planning your own treks and have some experience hiking in the Andes, this is for you. Departure is very flexible: July 3 at the earliest, July 12 at the latest.
I have done 3 solo treks of 5-6 days in the Andes, and feel completely comfortable with planning, preparing for, and completing this one alone. I would be happy to have a companion or two though, so as long as you are comfortable hiking at altitude and carrying your own weight, it will work out fine. I have ‘ll my own gear except for a stove and pot-set, which I will be renting.
Here’s a very informative write-up from others who did it solo:
