Cordillera Huayhuash Classic Circuit
This hike, to the classic huayhuash mountain range, takes us to enjoy, a collection of 18 miles of high peaks in the Peruvian Andes. The paradise of this tour is remote, wild and incredibly beautiful. The range is home to Siula Grande (20,814 ‘), made history of the famous mountaineering book and the film “Touching the Void”. Going around the whole mountain range we cross many high passes higher than 4500m, and two of them reach more than 5000m.
We camped next to incredibly beautiful alpine lakes and in wide green valleys with wild flowers and hurried alpine streams. And all the time on the road we watch in amazement at the gigantic snow-laden andes that rise above us with peaks at elevations above 20,000 feet. Do not miss this unique opportunity to walk in life through one of the most incredible mountain ranges in the world. Contact Us, to get more information or reserve your place today.
