Classic Cordillera Huayhuash trekking circuit Huaraz, Peru

Go2Andes  00537870

The full Huayhuash trek is the classic route of the region. In making a complete loop around the entire range it crosses several spectacular passes higher than 4600m, two of which top out at over 5000m.  Our treks visit the Cutatambo valley, which is situated below the mountain “Siula Grande”, the real-life setting of Joe Simpson’s famous story, “Touching the Void”. Among the many prominent peaks visible on the trek are Rondoy, Ninashanca, Jirishanca, Yerupajá chico, Yerupajá, Cuyoc, Diablo Mudo, Rasac, and Sacra.  We also pass the lakes, Mitucocha, Carhuacocha, Atoqsahyco, Viconga, Jahuacocha, and others.  This route is also a great option because it affords the opportunity to experience the great diversity of flora and fauna in the region.  The classic Cordillera Huayhuash trek is considered one of the top ten trekking circuits in the world.
