Description

If you are an experienced hiker in search of a big challenge in the Peruvian Andes, you're in the right place.

Today I have a spectacular plan for people who already have some trekking experience and a strong fitness level. I would like to invite you to walk through the Huayhuash Haute Route.

Unlike the classic trek in this mountain range, this high route is an off the beaten track. With my help you can reach the heart of the Cordillera Huayhuash passing by suspended glaciers and crystal water lakes. In addition to that, you'll witness the immensity of the famous Siula Grande wall. And if we are lucky, we will be able to enjoy the flight of the Andean condors.

If I had to sum up the main reasons why you should come with my through the Huayhuash Haute Route, I'd list the following ones:

  • The most stunning views of all the Huayhuash range;

  • We will walk by high passes at the foot of the glaciers;

  • It is an uncrowded route, with few people on the trail.

Are you ready for this demanding but rewarding adventure? So, fill out the form and contact me! We can discuss your ideas and wishes and I will organize the perfect trip for you.
