Huayhuash Circuit, Peru
About this adventure
Pronounced whywash, this Peruvian circuit is one of the most spectacular trekking ranges in the world. This challenging full circuit trek is the best way to fully appreciate the sheer scale and beauty of these snow‑capped summits, including Yerupaja, the second highest mountain in Peru. Our trip includes ample time for acclimatisation in Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca before spending 11 days crossing stunning high passes, all in the vicinity of 5,000 m. Each day provides us with an ever‑changing backdrop of soaring peaks including the distinctive needle‑like peak of Jirishanca and the impressive summit of Yerupaja. Each night we set up camp in remote locations alongside alpine meadows and brilliant blue glacial lagoons in this unrivalled corner of the Andes. For the lover of high mountain regions, it would be hard to beat this exceptional trek.
