Description

Yerupajá is a striking mountain in the Peruvian Andes that is one of the most picturesque peaks in South America.

The 6,635-meter giant is part of the wider Cordillera Huayhuash mountain range that stretches across the Peruvian regions of Ancash, Lima and Huánuco.

Join me and push the pedals through this breathtaking scenery and discover the wild wonders of Peru.

This extreme mountain biking tour covers a single track of the Cordillera Huayhuash, where you’ll witness impressive rock formations that rise dramatically to the sky.

Snow-covered summits, wide glaciers, tranquil blue lakes. This is what you have to look forward to. During the trip we will cross 8 mountains passes, including the highest at 5,000 meters.

Despite the track not being too difficult nor technical, the route is not very well marked, which makes peddling quite demanding, as well as having to navigate steep and rocky sections.

During the trip we’ll head out on 5 days of acclimatisation rides in the Cordillera Blanca and Negra, the former being the highest tropical mountain range in the world.

Potential participants are required to have a very good level of fitness and stamina.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the stunning Cordillera Huayhuash mountain range and tour the Yerupajá by bike on a 16-day adventure.
