Huayhuash Circuit Trek

The Huayhuash circuit a world-class trek in one of the most fantastic natural mountain sceneries in the planet! The complete loop crosses several passes above 4500 m and a couple that tops out at over 5000 m. The range has some famous summits like: Siula Grande (Joe Simpson’s book and film: “Touching the Void”), Jirishanca and Yurupaja. All of them dramatically steep and isolated, something characteristic of Huayhuash’s peaks. This is a high altitude itinerary with long distances to be cover, but with the reward of visiting a remote place with few people and lots of wild nature!
