An incredible opportunity to see an usual and unspoilt part of Peru. The high altitude trek included some breathtaking views and the opportunity to watch avalanches. The stars and Milky Way where ever present in the night sky. Blue ice and turquoise lakes made for a special combination.
Too many rest days and half days of walking the trip could have been shorter & cheaper without some of these days. The trip to the National Park on day 4 was a complete waste of time 10hours travel for 20mins of walking. The scenery was ok but we were about to see far better on the actual trek.
This is a really special trek at altitude in the most amazing scenery. Because the Huayhuash is a small mountain range, there was an intimate feel in the closeness of the snow topped mountains, glaciers and lakes.
A near pefect experience - enabled by a warm and knowledgeable and very experieced guide (Miguel). I'm not the most confident moutain trekker but in |Miguel's care I was relaxed throughout.Note that the trip I went on was Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash - which i see no longer runs - teruible shame!
I consider myself a very lucky person to have seen all those those magnificient landscapes, to come close to awesome Yerupaja and Siula. Trekking the Huayhuash is very special and I loved every second of it, even the freezing nights and mornings. The walking days were not that long so that we had enough time to recover and enjoy the beauty of it all
