Cordillera Huayhuash one of The Best Treks of The World
This is an amazing journey to the very heart of the Cordillera Huayhuash, the second highest tropical mountain range in the world. A trekker’s paradise, this terrain is remote, wild, and stunningly beautiful. The film Touching the Void, the tale of climbers Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, was made about their harrowing experience as the first mountaineers to scale Siula Grande, which is part of this mountain range.
This version of the trek crosses six high passes over 4500 m (14,760 ft) and two that are higher than 5000m(16,404, ft)!Throughout the 12 days of the trek, we camp next to stunningly beautiful alpine lakes and in broad, grassy valleys replete with wildflowers and rushing alpine creeks, while basking in the imposing presence of the White Mountains looming over us, with peaks at elevations above 5000 m (16,404, ft) and 6000m (19,685ft).
At least three days of acclimatization hikes in the area are strongly recommended to be able to enjoy the trek.
