THE BEST OF CORDILLERA HUAYHUASH
 

7 days / 6 nights

INTRODUCTION

With new access roads into what is considered the most spectacular mountain scenery of Peru, we have developed this short trek into the heart of the mountain range. It offers a new opportunity for those who don’t have the time to do the longer, classic traditional route. A prerequisite however is to be well acclimatized since we get high fast.

ITINERARY
