Description

Discover the Quebrada de Llanganuco, a fantastic place near Huaraz, Peru, you cannot miss!

After breakfast, around 8:00 am we’ll head towards our private tour bus station, at Jirón 28 de Julio 202 in Huaraz. Thereon, we’ll drive towards de Llanganuco Lakes, located between the Huandowy and Huascaran peaks, where our adventure begins at 3,100 masl.

On the way to Llanganuco, we’ll pass by various enchanting towns such as Monterrey, Tarica, Paltay, Yungar Anta and Jangas. Thus, we’ll get to learn about the local culture and lifestyle of the people that inhabit this area. Also we’ll enjoy breathtaking sceneries of the Cordillera Blanca, including the Huascaran, Hualcan, Huandoy and Copa peaks amongst others.

One of the many places will explore is Yungay. This city has a rich and intriguing history. An earthquake in 1970 broke up pieces of the north peak of Huascaran, causing a massive avalanche of mud and ice. And in less than a minute the Yungay province was destroyed. We’ll take our time visiting the area, as well as the new Yungay, from here we’ll begin ascending to the Llanganuco Lakes.

We’ll continue our hike for about 1 hour until we reach the Cebollapampa trail head. Thereon our trekking adventure continues, exploring lakes Orconcocha and Chinacocha. Here, there are several optional activities we can engage on like sailing or horse riding.

Finally, we’ll keep trekking on the Maria Josefa trail. By the end of it, our private bus will be waiting for us to take us to a typical restaurant on the countryside. After recovering our energies, we’ll head back to Huaraz and our meeting point.

We had such an amazing time on this Trek! From the beginning to the end we had wonderful service through “Wild Huayhuash - Tomas Operator”. It is an amazing, beautiful, take your breath away hike. The guides are knowledgeable, kind, and extremely helpful. We had guide/cook Rosmel, guide Angel, operators Edgar and Tomas. Rosmel made us food every day(breakfast, lunch, snacks (popcorn), and dinner), woke us up to a fresh cup of tea every morning in our tent, and guides us through the first few days of our hike. He was like Superman carrying our lunch on his back every day of the trek (think heavy food in pots, with juice). Angel was the guide the rest of the way through the trek and was also very kind and professional. He was funny, paced us well through the hard sections, and let us have breaks whenever we needed. Both Rosmel & Angel were always working to get us to the best viewpoints, and best camping spots first, before the other groups. They also both helped when I had an asthma attack during the trek. From the operator side, Tomas and Edgar were amazing. Going through all the information we would need, allowing us to leave extra things in their office, allowing us to rest and shower in one of their rooms at no extra charge when we got back from the trek, and Edgar helped us find a map of Huayhuash so we could document our journey when we got back (finding a map of Huayhuash in Huaraz was not easy). This was a well put together group, and always seemed to be one step ahead of the other Huayhuash trekking groups. I highly recommend!
