Situated 50 km to the south east of the Cordillera Blanca and 4 hours by car from Huaraz, the Cordillera Huayhuash is a smaller, more rugged and more remote mountain range. With 7 peaks above 6,000m and many more above 5500m, it is one of the most spectacular mountain trekking & hiking circuits in the world.
The Huayhuash peaks include Peru´s second highest peak - Yerupaja and also Siula Grande made famous by Joe Simpson`s book "Touching the Void".
The landscape surrounding the Huayhuash range tends to be open with rolling grassland and beautiful trout–filled turquoise lakes lie at the foot of many of the glaciers. The trekking circuits in the Huayhuash pass very close to the majestic rugged peaks and glaciers, and every day hikers are treated to awe inspiring mountain views.
The trekking circuits cross up to 8 passes, the highest at 5000m. Often campsites are at one of the beautiful trout filled lakes situated at the foot of rugged peaks and glaciers.
