This is a moderate mountaineering challenge that welcomes all type of climbers. Even if it’s not the highest peak in Huayhuash, it undoubtedly offers some of the most breathtaking views of the area.

Then, next day we will head to Llamac, where our team of porters and donkeys will be ready to help us with our gear and supplies. Thereupon a 6 hour hike to Rio Camp, our first campsite, awaits for us.

After resting for the night, our morning begins hiking to Cashapampa. Then, once we set camp, we’ll start preparations for the summit.

On day 5 we’ll depart at about 2:00 a.m. towards the summit of Diablo Mudo. A 3.5 hours trek will take us to a stunning glacier. Thereon, an hour ascent will lead us to the top of this magnificent mountain. After enjoying the views and the fresh air, we’ll descend to the Huacrish Valley and the Jahuacocha Camp, which we’ll reach at about 4:00 p.m.

The last day of our trail will take us to the Jahua Punta Pass (4,650 m) and the enchanting village of Pocpa (3,600 m). There, our private transport will be waiting to take you back to Huaraz.

What people are saying about Peru


He was very kind, patient and helped me to reach my goal the citadel of Machupicchu. One day I wanted to quit but he encouraged me to continue and waited for my step.


We did the MTB-Huarascan-Circuit (Crossing Punta Olimpica Pass and Portachuelo de Llanganuco Pass) with Eric Albinos „Peru Expedition“. All, the transfers, the hotel stays, the acclimatization tours and the circuit itself, was well organized. Eric and his staff were flexible to our wishes and very helpful. Our Guide Joni is an excellent mountain bike-guide and good tailor too if something is torn. The cook prepared delicious meals during the circuit. The camping equipment was in very good condition. We (Karin, Franz. Wolfgang) can fully recommend „Eric´s Peru Expeditions“.



The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.


5 star guide. Nothing but the best.


A very, very sympathic guide, who knows all the secrets of the places and itinerarys the most beautiful ; organization top ; food excellent too ; marvellous souvenirs.
