Venture Deeper into the Alluring Cordillera Huayhuash
Voted “The Second Most Beautiful Trek in the World” by National Geographic, this classic Huayhuash route takes you through the breath-taking, rugged and remote hiking trails of the Cordillera Huayhuash. Here, you’ll witness a spectacular array of mountains, meadows and lakes; as well as the inhabitants that live among these natural highlights. Covering approximately 10-12km a day, the circuit is demanding on both body and mind. But you can tailor the route according to your preferences, such as having longer or shorter timeframes; incorporating rest days to allow for a more spaced out, slower paced experience; as well as opting for a simpler, gentler ascent.

Hard. The very first day involves an altitude gain of 1,080m and subsequent days involve us ascending to various passes. Acclimatising to the altitudes can be a taxing process on your body and mind. Furthermore, although most multi-day treks usually incorporate rest days, this route does not. However, we can customise the journey according to your preferences, such as slotting in rest days and adjusting the timeframe.
From US$1,320/person for a group of 2 on a private basis, including double-sharing rooms/tents. Excludes international flights.
As we’ll customise your journey based on your preferences and needs, please note that this indicative price is just a rough estimate. Prices can fluctuate depending on season, type of accommodation and activities/experiences chosen (private vs. shared) etc.
This journey outline is by no means conclusive. It is just a guideline and can be tailored according to your comfort level, interests and preferences for every detail from accommodation to activities.
