110 km south of Huaraz, this 30km range runs north to south and contains 7 peaks over 6,000 meters (19,680 feet) and 7 more over 5,500 meters (18,000 feet). Impressive, remote, and breathtaking, treks are from 5 or 12 days in length.
The Huayhuash circuit trek circles the entire range and is one of the most scenic hikes in Peru and one of the best hikes in the world. Blue glacier lakes and towering white peaks abound in this trek. Do a short variation of this trek or challenge yourself by doing the entire circuit (120 - 186km of walking depening on start/finish locations).
You will be walking between altitudes of 2,750 meters (9,022 feet) and 5,000 (16,404 feet) meters and so, acclamatizing is important. We recommend spending a few days before at The Lazy Dog Inn and doing day trips that take you to +4,000 meters (13,123 feet) so that you can be ready to enjoy your Huayhuash trek!
