Cordillera Huayhuash Trek- Thirteen days of trekking, almost always above 4000m, crossing a breathtaking succession of passes around the spectacular Cordillera Huayhuash mountains in the Peruvian Andes. This is simply one of the greatest walks in the world.
This circuit is sustained and demanding, though never as arduous as the eight passes we cross would suggest. It has a remote feel and with the altitude, our extra early acclimatisation days are essential. The trail skirts glaciers, moraines and icy green lakes, always dwarfed by the towering peaks above. We will be awe-struck at the sights of Yerupaja, Siula and the icy needle of Ninashanca and marvel at the panorama of white peaks spread out from the top of Punta Cuyoc, our highest pass at 5000m.
Camp in high meadows, fish for fresh trout and marvel at the abundant and varied bird life. All this in the good company of our local guide, cook and arrieros is an experience and an adventure to remember forever.
The classic Cordillera Huayhuash Trek – no short cuts. Two harder pass options for fitter trekkers.
