trek peru's cordillera huayhuash

Trip is full and has a waitlist. The focus of this trip is a 12 day trek through the Cordillera Huayhuash. It is often included in lists of the most scenic treks in the world. The entire route is at a high altitude and offers views of spectacular mountain landscapes and pristine glacial lakes. We will spend 3 days in Huaraz, Peru before beginning the trek to acclimatize while we do day hikes in the surrounding area including parts of the Cordillera Negra and Cordillera Blanca. There is also the option to extend the trip to take a sightseeing tour through the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Dates are for the full trip. If just interested in the trek the in country dates would be May 17 - June 4.
