Welcome to a great short hike in a nice valley far from other touristic routes: the Quilcayhuanca trek!
This Quilcayhuanca 3-day tour I am offering woks perfectly as an acclimatization before a bigger goal. I think it is also ideal for those in search of an easy trip outdoors which lets them enjoy the unique landscape of north Peru.
During this hiking trip in Quilcayhuanca you’ll find 3 amazing lakes: the Cayesh, the Tullpacocha and the Cuchilla. All of them are over 4000 meters of altitude! Moreover, the Tullpacocha and the Cuchilla lakes lie at the base of a great cirque of peaks, known as “the Chinchey peaks group”. It’s at 6309 meters of height. As you can see, it is also a really amazing trip to discover all these wonders that Peru has for you!
And as if all this were not enough, in the interior of the Quilcayhuanca valley, we can appreciate a great gorge of 13 km long that ends in the huge cirque of peaks.
The trail also passes through green fields where there are a big amount of cows, horses and donkeys. It is possible to see the most diverse fauna in this place, from small birds to curious foxes. You will also witness a large number of archaeological remains that add more value to this journey. Please find more details about the itinerary at the bottom of this description.
Regarding the best season to come, I recommend the period from May till September, during the driest season. The maximum group size is 15 guests. All of them must have some previous hiking experience and a good physical condition. I have not an open group yet, so I will open a new one for you and your friends if you wish!
All you have to do is getting in touch with me. I will help you plan this amazing trip or many other hiking adventures in the area, such as this trekking day in the Wilcacocha Lake.
So, fill out the form and let’s conquer the Cordillera Blanca together !!!
