Come and discover one of the most beautiful trekking places in the world: the Huayhuash Range!

The Huayhuash Range is located in the Andes of Peru and it has around 20 peaks. In addition, it’s the second highest mountain range in the world and famous for its beautiful trekking spots.

I propose a 11-days program in which we’ll explore some of the greatest peaks of Huayhuash Range with an altitude over 4000 meters. We’ll also enjoy its spectacular lagoons which offers incredible landscapes.

And the final challenge will be the ascent of Diablo Mudo, a 5350 m peak. From it’s summit we will enjoy an astonishing view of the whole range.


DAY 1: Meeting at Huaraz, from where we start our trip. We’ll appreciate a panoramic view of the city and the peaks surrounding. Acclimatization hike to  Lake Churup 4450 m, and back to Huaraz, where we spend the night in a hotel.
