The amazing Huayhuash trek

Huayhuash, Huaraz
04 days / 03 nights

This is one of the best trekking programmes that can be carried out in the Peruvian Andes.
The Cordillera Huayhuash is a relatively unknown Cordillera, located in one of the most remote and beautiful regions of the Andean Cordillera. It is considered to be one of the most spectacular mountain treks in the world. The route (180 Km) around the impressive “Cordillera Huayhuash” (which is 30 Km long) rewards us with the most splendid landscapes on earth: beautiful Andean grasslands surrounded by defiant mountains that reach heights above 6,000m, beautiful lakes where the mountains are reflected, narrow valleys that confirm the Peruvian Andes steep relief, offering us in one small range seven of the highest Peruvian Andes dramatic summits.
