The majestic mountains and lush landscapes of the Peruvian wilderness are in abundance, where each day captures a fresh experience.

Trek within the Cordillera Huayhuash mountain range, which stretches across the Peruvian regions of Ancash, Lima and Huánuco.

It is the second highest tropical mountain range in the world following the Cordillera Blanca. Running from north to south, it contains approximately 20 summits within 25 kilometers.

There are 6 peaks that surpass 6,000 meters, among them is Yerupajá (6,635m), the most striking mountain in the Peruvian Andes and one of the most picturesque peaks in South America.

Discover impressive rock formations that rise dramatically to the sky, along with snow-covered summits, wide glaciers, and tranquil blue lakes.

We’ll also get to know the Alpamayo, considered by many to be the most beautiful mountain in the world. The striking mountain has a dramatic pyramid-shape peak clothed in snow.

The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.

The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.

William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!

Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.
