Huayhuash Circuit Trek 1

The Huayhuash circuit is among the best trek in the world and it is a well-deserved title. Located in the Peruvian Andes, close the Cordillera Blanca, the Huayhuash range has some of the most dramatic peaks in the Andes like: Siula Grande (Dramatised in the film “Touching the Void”), Carnicero, Jirishanca and Yurupaja (Second highest mountain in Peru) just to name a few.

The semi-circular itinerary goes over several mountain passes, one of them above 5000 meters and most above 4500 meters. This is a high altitude trek, quite remote, physically demanding and long distances to be cover, but worth every step of the way. On top of all that, even though it is a famous trek, sees much less visitors than similar popular treks around the world.

An experience not to be missed!!
