Trip Facts: Huayhuash Circuit

Superb Trekking

The Huayhuash circuit is considered the best trekking route in the Andes and one of the best alpine treks on earth.

Breathtaking Mountain Landscapes

Enjoy panoramic views of gorgeous remote and unspoiled mountain landscapes while you hike along countless pristine turquoise-coloured lakes, peaked by spectacular glacier-covered mountains.

Demanding Hike

The Huayhuash Circuit is for truly adventurous souls and hikers in a very good physical condition only: 130km (81mi) of hiking and elevations as high as 5,490m (18,012ft).

Fully Supported

The trek is led by a local English speaking professional trekking guide and includes overnights in quality mountain tents, pack animals to carry campsite equipment, food and personal gear as well as an emergency horse for evacuation.

TRIP ITINERARY

The Huayhuash circuit is among the best trek in the world and it is a well-deserved title. Located in the Peruvian Andes, close the Cordillera Blanca, the Huayhuash range has some of the most dramatic peaks in the Andes like: Siula Grande (Dramatised in the film “Touching the Void”), Carnicero, Jirishanca and Yurupaja (Second highest mountain in Peru) just to name a few. The semi-circular itinerary goes over several mountain passes, one of them above 5,000 meters (16,404 ft) and most above 4,500 meters (14,763 ft). This is a high altitude trek, quite remote, physically demanding and long distances to be cover, but worth every step of the way. On top of all that, even though it is a famous trek, it sees much less visitors than similar popular treks around the world. An experience not to be missed!!
