    De la mano de Humberto Huamán y Jilver Marcelo y la impecable organización de Peruhuayhuash recorrí el minihuayhuash. Una experiencia única e inolvidable no sólo por la majestuosidad de sus paisajes, sino por la paciencia, sabiduría y, sobretodo, amplia experiencia de estos caballeros que, desde hace muchos tiempo (25 años), vienen recorriendo las entrañas del corazón de los andes. Humberto y su ahijado Jilver conocen, como la palma de su mano, no sólo la alucinante cordillera de Huayhuash, sino La Cordillera Blanca y los más recónditos paraísos de Perú. Gracias a esto Humberto es, hoy por hoy, Presidente de Guías oficiales de Caminatas del Perú. En mejores manos no pude estar. Sin duda Peruhuayhuash es la mejor alternativa para recorrer las Montañas Peruanas

    Faute de temps au bout de trois semaines de vacances au Pérou en août 2019, je n’ai fait que le mini trek de 4 jours à Huayhuash, et en tant que participant uniquement à la date de départ prévue.

    En fait, je ne l’ai pas fait seul, car c’était une organisation entière, avec mon guide Humberto Naval, le cuisinier, le muletier et ses trois ânes, et le cheval de sauvetage, toute cette logistique!

    Je ne vous oublierai pas, j’en garde un très bon souvenir, tout particulièrement de mon guide Humberto, très gentil, avec qui nous avons échangé des discussions intéressantes.

    Humberto est un guide culte, qui ne manque pas l’occasion de donner des informations sur les montagnes et la population locale, sur la faune et la flore locales, tout au long du trekking.

    Humberto a également adapté le rythme du trek à mes possibilités physiques, et a fait gagner du temps de récupération et d’information.

    Je vous recommande vraiment comme guide.
