Description

Welcome to this mini trek in Cordillera Huayhuash! I will guide you through the best Andean corners during 4 days.  

The Cordillera Huayhuash has been considered the second most beautiful trekking experience in the world, after the Annapurna trek in Nepal.

Although it is a demanding trail, the views during the hike are really breathtaking. You won’t believe such a landscape, full of turquoise lakes, high snow-capped peaks and wide grasslands.

I can take with me a maximum of 5 guests. However, if you are a larger group I can ask a colleague to join us. That way I can offer you a fun and safe experience.

As for the technical level, this trek is suitable for experienced hikers. In addition, all participants must have an excellent physical condition as we have to reach up to 5000 meters in height on foot.

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Perú.

I was born in the Huaraz city, which is located between cordillera blanca & cordillera negra neighbor of huayhuash mountain range.

My passion for the mountain was born since I was a child, because I watched my father going to the mountain. When I was 13 years old I started going on treks with my father and clients, and as soon as I finished my high school I applied to the high school mountain center studies (CEAM) in 2001 and I graduated as an official mountain guide in 2005.

I have a wide guiding experience in trekking and climbing, organizing, trekking and climbing expeditions into cordillera Blanca & huayhuash in the Peruvian mountains.

I guided successfully in Mexico, Argentina where I climbed conquering the mount Aconcagua at (6959 m).

In Peru I have climbed the most beautiful mountain in the world mount "Alpamayo", and the Peruvian highest peak "mount Huascaran south peak". In 2005 I made a speed record climbing mounts "Alpamayo" & "Quitaraju" in 32 hours 16 minutes. I also opened some new routes to climbing in cordillera Blanca.

Aside from the AGMP / IFMGA certification, I also have the WFR certification.
