Cordillera Huayhuash Trekking

Hikers with the glaciated Cordillera Huayhuash behind, Peru


Enjoy world-class trekking in the most awe-inspiring range in the Andes Mountains.

Peru is home to more than the amazing ruins of the Incan Empire – it is also where the second highest mountain range in the world towers above rain forests and grasslands. The Andes are a trekking paradise with towering, glaciated mountains; absolutely stunning alpine valleys, lakes, rivers and meadows; unique wildlife; and indigenous cultures still living traditional lifestyles.

The Cordillera Huayhuash specifically is a compact mountain range within the greater Andes Mountains that offers absolutely world-class trekking. Many of its snow-capped peaks soar well over 20,000 feet, creating deep, glacial-carved valleys where rivers plunge out of the mountains. We offer a portered trek in this stunning region – our Cordillera Huayhuash Trek. This trip is an all-inclusive, portered camping trip that takes you through the heart of some of the most impressive mountain scenery in the world!
