    This 9 days trek will take you into the heart of the ‘Cordillera Blanca’ of Huaraz, Perú, one of the most beautiful areas of the Andes Mountains.

    In the ‘Cordillera Blanca’, impressive mountains covered with glaciers contrast with the blue sky and green valleys where local farmers work the land. The range has more than 30 peaks over 6000 mt.

    Huaraz is the starting point of the journey. The city is at 3050 mt and has 120000 habitants.

    We’ll start by car through the Huaylas valley, from where we’ll see some classic peaks of the ‘Cordillera Blanca’ such as Mt. Chopicalqui, Huandoy, and Huascarán, the highest peak in the region (6700 mt). After passing the villages of Caraz and Cashapampa we’ll start the trekking.

    During the four days local porters and mules will assist us with the transport of tents, equipment and food.

    The trekking trail goes along the Santa Cruz gorge for 42 km, until we reach the highest point at Punta Unión pass (4750 mt), in the base of Mt. Taulliraju.
