Description

The Huayhuash Circuit is an incomparable trek in the Peruvian Andes. Adventurers from all around the world come to this fantastic place to enjoy the mesmerizing sceneries it offers. So don’t miss the opportunity to complete this famous circuit and get dazzled by its unrivalled beauty.

Also known as the Jewel of the Andes, the Huayhuash Circuit goes around the majestic massif of the Cordillera Huayhuash. So we’ll be able to admire six of the highest mountains on this area, rising above the 6,000 meters. For instance, we will see up close the legendary Mount Yerupaja (6,634m), Peru’s second tallest peak. Also, we’ll have the chance to gaze at Siula Grande (6,344) immortalized in the famous story Touching the Void, by Joe Simpson.

Peaks such as Huayhuash (5,400m) with a unique shape and impressive vertical walls will guide us as well. Then, we’ll encounter dazzling and vast glaciers. And of course, we will visit the most breathtaking mountain lakes, with wonderful shades of turquoise and emerald.

Moreover, these mountains, lakes and valleys have a privileged ecosystem as diverse as mesmerizing. Hence, we’ll keep our eyes open for the curious animals and high mountain flora that we’ll encounter.

Also, our itinerary will let us live three adventures in one. As we’ll experience three different regions: Lima, Huánanuco and Ancash. The more that 16 kilometers of extension of the Huayhuash Circuit are an open invitation for true explores.

So, if you want to complete the Huayhuash Circuit just send me a request. It will be my pleasure to be your guide on such a marvellous place.
