The mountains have always been central to Peru’s Andean civilizations. More than just staggeringly beautiful natural wonders, the mountains, called Apus, were revered as gods, sacred beings at the centre of ancient Andean spirituality. And no Apu was more important than the mighty Ausangate, the great peak that dominates the entire altiplano of Peru’s southern Andes, not far from the ancient capital of Cusco.
