In 2017 visit the lesser-known mountain ranges of Peru – The Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash provide amazing hiking options.

The Cordillera Blanca, is the highest tropical mountain range in the world and hosts major 6000m peaks such as Huascaran Sur and Norte being the tallest mountain in Peru, Huantsan, Tocllaraju, Ranrapalca, Quitaraju, Palcaraju, Chopicalqui, Huandoy, Arteson, Chacraraju, Chinchey, Pucaranra, etc. and the most beautiful mountain in the world Alpamayo.

The Cordillera Huayhuash is very a compact mountain range and hiking in this range is becoming popular thanks to Joe Simpson’s book and film Touching the Void.

Backpacking Treks in Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash of the Peruvian Andes Mountain Range http://huarazperutreks.com/backpacking-treks-in-cordillera-blanca-and-huayhuash-of-the-peruvian-andes-mountain-range/ Sat, 19 Nov 2016 01:43:30 +0000 http://huarazperutreks.com/?p=1173 Backpacking Guided Hikes are for people looking for a more challenging multi-day hiking experience. These hikes are in remote and often challenging areas where a high level of fitness is required by all.

These tours are rugged and the facilities can be basic at times: camp, stay in mountain huts or sleep under the stars.

The trips will however reward you with spectacular views and a real sense of achievement.

On these trips everyone lends a hand: whether it’s cooking, washing or pitching a tent together.

No multi-day hiking experience is needed but you need to be a good walker and able to carry a backpack.

Acclimatization
We highly recommend that you arrive in Huaraz at least three days before the trek departs and spend time doing day hikes to higher altitude, this will help with acclimatization to the new altitude. We can help organise day hikes for you.

Good Backpacking Trek options are:

Pisco Base Camp and Lake 69 Trek – 2 Days
Quilcayhuanca Valley and Churup Lake Trek – 3 to 4 Days
Quilcayhuanca to Cojup Valley Trek – 3 to 4 Days
Huayhuash Trek to Laguna Jahuacocha – 3 to 4 Days
