Trek in the Cordillera Huayhuash
From 4 to 14 days
Unanimously in the world of hikers, the Huayhuash Mountain Range is considered one of the most beautiful treks in the world with the Annapurna Tour in Nepal. The main difference between the two is the diversity of the landscapes and ecosystems of Huayhuash. When you find abundant water and vegetation to the edge of the ice, you will not find monotony in this walk of more than a week. The Cordillera Huayhuash is classified as a difficult hike due to its distance (approximately 165km) and the altitude where it is reached (between 4,000 masl~ 5,000 masl).
In fact, the daily stages are short: from 12 to 15 km, which represents 5 to 7 hours of walking, but it will not be a race against the clock, but on the contrary, we will take advantage of this unique environment, observing the local fauna and flora (Throughout the year, especially in April, May and June), and we will take the time to photograph the mountains, lakes and rivers ... In other words, we will have plenty of time to reach the next camp ...
The secret to make this walk in good condition is to have a good acclimatization to the altitude. Our camps are very comfortable and the menus are quality, prepared by a French chef ... All the equipment will be transported in donkeys, so you will not have anything else to use than your camera, a little water and your picnic (included) , not to mention a good sunscreen.
The best season is from mid-April to the end of October:
April, May and June are the best months for flower enthusiasts;
July and August are the best months to have a blue sky;
In September the first clouds arrive; from October to November are the months of the photographers since the colors are warmer and a clear sky after 2 or 3 with weekly rains in the afternoon.
We can offer treks that go from 3 to 14 days depending on the options.
The programs are adjusted according to the options, days and physical capacity. To carry out any of these treks, we recommend having a good acclimatization of 3 to 4 days. Here some of our proposals:
