HUAYHUASH - ALPINE TREK
ALPINE ROUTE CORDILLERA HUAYHUASH TREK (10D / 9N)
Located in the spectacular Cordillera Huayhuash, our Alpine trek route is one of the most beautiful wild walks in the world. You will camp within view of blue and green turquoise lakes, which lie at the feet of the huge, sheer massifs which characterize the Cordillera Huayhuash. Mountains such as Rondoy, Ninashanca, Jirishanca, Siula, Puscanturpa, Rasac, Jurau. Trapecio, and the majestic Yerupaja will all be seen close up. Crossing passes of over 4700 meters in elevation will provide us with spectacular views of most of the Cordillera Huayhuash range. Our route of descent affords us glimpses of wild creatures in their native habitat, and the Andean flora and fauna covering the canyons of the Cordillera Huayhuash.
