Join me for this experience of a lifetime as we spend 15-days trekking through the sublime wilderness of the Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru!

Once we complete the trek, we will also spend some time exploring the ancient Incan capital of Cusco and finish the trip off with a spectacular sunrise and tour of Machu Picchu.

However, we begin with an immersive hiking experience deep in the Peruvian wilderness. For for 10-day duration of our initial trek, we will hike over passes and descend into valleys, enjoying spectacular views of snow-capped peaks and turquoise-blue lakes.

Along the way, we may also spy some of Peru’s most iconic wildlife, including the endangered Andes Condor.

We will also spend two days hiking to the Base Camp of Siula Grande, which was made famous by Joe Simpson’s book-turned-film, “touching the void”.

We will be out in the remote wilderness of Peru, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the rugged solitude as we ascend each of the eight mountain passes of the trek and descend back into each valley.

Once the trek is over, we head back to Cusco for a tour before finishing our trip with a visit to the iconic UNESCO world heritage site that is Machu Picchu.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this exhilarating 15-day trek through the Cordillera Huayhuash, culminating in a tour of the mysterious and majestic Machu Picchu!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
