Warm welcome to the Cordillera Huayhuash Peru

There is no doubt that the trekking circuits in the Cordillera Huayhuash are among the very best in the world. Located in the Peruvian Andes just south of the Cordillera Blanca and measuring a mere 30km in length, the Cordillera Huayhuash is an incredible compact cluster of enormous icy towers surrounded by cascading rivers, turquoise lakes, and with a great diversity of flora and fauna. Here looming overhead stands the legendary Yerupaja (6634m), the second highest peak in Perú, and more legendary still, Siula Grande (6336m), a mountain famous as the setting of Joe Simpson’s epic tale of survival, “Touching the Void”.

We have had the great fortune to have walked the Huayhuash circuit many times and would like to invite you to join us on one of our adventures. We offer several different trekking programs of different durations and for a wide range of budgets. You may, for example, mix the classic circuit with an ascent of a moderate peak like the Diablo Mudo, do a shorter route that lasts less than a week, or you may prefer to organize your own trek/climb for which we can provide all the information and logistical support you’ll need.
