Join Marco, a local IFMGA certified mountain guide, in this 10-day trekking trip along the beautiful Huayhuash Trek, considered the 2nd best hiking adventure of the world.
The Huayhuash trek is considered the second most beautiful trail of the world. It is a really amazing hiking route of the Cordillera Huayhuash, the second highest mountain range in the tropical region.
During this great 10-day program, we will also visit the Siula Mountain, which is part of the Cordillera Huayhuash. In that mountain took place the famous movie “Touching the Void”.
In addition, the stunning surrounding views, landscapes and lagoons will leave you with your mouth open. Undoubtedly, the Huayhuash Trek has something for everyone.
The best season to enjoy this hiking trip is during the months from April till October. As it’s a moderate trail I can lead a group of 6 participants. If you are more than 7 people a trekking guide assistant will join us.
At the bottom of this description you can find more details about the day-by-day itinerary.
And if you like hiking adventures let me also recommend you the first part of my program in the Santa Cruz trek. It’s usually use as an acclimatization before a summit attempt. However, it also works perfectly as a trekking trip itself.
