It’s a big pleasure for me to invite you to this 4-day mini trek in the Huayhuash range, the second highest tropical  mountain chain of the world.

Our meeting point will be in Huaraz. If you come from Lima, Peru’s capital, you can take a 8-hour ride by bus to get there. There are also many available domestic flights that don’t take more than 50 minutes.

As for the itinerary, on day 1 we’ll travel to Llamac, the trailhead to get the 4200-meter peak of Rondoy and then we’ll go back Huaraz where we’ll spend the first night. The following day, after crossing the Rondoy Pass  at 4750 meters, we’ll reach the Jahuacocha Camp. From there, on day 3, we’ll walk around to visit the Rasac and Solteracocha lakes. There is also the option of climbing up to the amazing Yaucha pass (4600 m). Finally we’ll return to Llamac on our last day, finishing our adventure again in Huaraz.

If you want to be part of this intense and exciting 4-day trek in the Huayhuash mountain range, please send your request now. I’ll be happy to guide you there and show you all the Peruvian treasures.
