Come along this 10-day Huayhuash hiking alpine route. A circuit filled with amazing views of the main peaks in this mountain range. Perfect for experienced hikers, since some segments are challenging and strenuous.
First, I will pick you up at Huaraz. Once there, we will drive to the Cuartellhuain camp. As from Day 2, the hiking and the adventure will begin. The circuit will include incredible views of glaciers lakes, rocky and glacier ascents, snowcapped peaks, glaciers and deep valleys.
Next, during 9 days I will guide you along hikes of between 4 and 7 hours per day. We will reach altitudes of over 5,000 m, like when we ascend to the Trapecio pass on Day 6 (5,000 m), and a great view pass on Day 7 (5,129 m). We will go through 6 passes in total.
Accommodation will be in different camps. Note that while I will provide the group camping equipment, hikers will need to bring their own sleeping bag (-15°C/5°F recommended). Also, all the meals will be prepared by a cook. It will be a menu high in carbohydrates to recover energy.
Also, during this Huayhuash hiking alpine route, I will lead you around several lakes. Some of these are: lakes Carhuacocha, Siula, Sarapo, Santa Rosa, Quesilococha, Jurao, Caramarca, Solteracocha and Jahuacocha.
