Peru is a welcoming and friendly country, full of surprises, where having a Spanish speaking guide will allow you to immerse yourselves in its cultre and traditions. Famous for its gastronomy, it also has deserts, sea, jungle and mountains. Huaraz is the mountaineering capital of the Andes, surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the Cordillera Blanca. An international city which welcomes thousands of mountaineers every year, and where we'll arrive after a 10hr colectivo (a typical shared minibus) ride.
From there an 8hr ride on dirt roads will find us in Cuartel Huaín, where your adventure and the challenge of Huayhuash will begin. In the words of the great mountaineer Jeff Lowe, it's "one of the most beautiful treks in the world" as the scenery changes daily; a landscape of greens and browns gives way to 5000m mountain passes, interspersed with lakes of every imaginable shade of blue and strewn with some of the most striking and whitest peaks in the Andes: Siula, Jirishanca, Trapecio, Yerupajá, Jurau, Rasac, Rondoy, Carnicero... Add to the scene the company of the donkey drivers, cook, donkeys, horses, and mules carrying our day to day camping equipment and food.
Now, for those who'd like to add a little spice to their trek, you have the option of climbing to the summit of el Diablo Mudo (5350m), making the most of the acclimatisation that trekking at altitude brings.
An experience that now is within your reach... wouldn't you love to try delicious Peruvian ceviche or roast chicken?
