We will take a private transfer to the old Yungay, where we will visit the campo santo. This area was completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1970.
Then we will continue driving in direction to the Hualcayan village, where we will meet with our mountain crew. Overnight camp at Hualcayan.
This day we walk on a steep hill admiring the spectacular view of the Hualcayan village, where the arable field looks like mosaic and most of it is sown for Andean products. Overnight camp at Wishcash.
Today we will climb up to the lake of Cullicocha. After resting, we will keep going up on a steep trail until we reach our first high pass, Punta Cillicocha. Here we can take amazing pictures of the huge mountains and cliffs and then, descend to our campsite in Osoruri.
After breakfast we walk towards the Vientonan Pass. Then we will descend through a landscape where the Mount Pilanco dominates the scene. We will follow walking until we are at the Jancarurish campsite. Overnight there.
Today we have two options:
This day is probably the hardest day of the trek since we must cross two mountain passes. First we will ascend on a steep trail until we reach the Cara Cara pass (4830m). We will then descend to climb up the next pass. Finally we walk down into Huillca, a remote mountain valley. Overnight camp here.
Today we’ll first reach the Yanacon Pass. After some pictures and rest we descend to the campsite. In the afternoon some Quechua families may come to offer their products, as beverages (soda or beer). We should buy some as a symbol of friendship that is a way to make money for those people. Overnight camp at Jancapampa.
We will pass through several remote Andean communities, where we can observe how people work their lands and livestock. We then walk up to the Tupa-Tupa Pass and after that we will descend to our next camp, Huecrucocha.
Early in the morning we’ll ascend to the Alto de Pucaraju Pass, from where the view is absolutely stunning. After that, we will walk through a rocky trail until we reach Tuctu – Paria valley, where we will set up our camp for the night.
Last day of the trip. It consists in an easy walk down across a wide green valley with some sections of quenual and quisuar forest. We will then reach Huaripampa village but we will pass directly in direction to Vaqueria. Here our private transportation awaits to bring us back to Huaraz. On the road we will drive across the Portachuelo pass, where the view is superb with several summits around. End of the program in Huaraz.
