Peru - The Cordillera Huayhuash

Grassroutes

The Cordillera Huayhuash, together with its larger and better-known northern neighbour, the Cordillera Blanca, provides arguably the best trekking and climbing in the whole of South America and the perfect area for a high level trekking holiday. The compact massif of the Huayhuash is famed for its dramatic mountain scenery, typified by fluted ice faces and knife-edge ridges. A stunning high-level trail makes an improbable circuit of this mountain group and provides trekking on a Himalayan scale. The whole area is accessed through the city Huaraz, located at 3,000m above sea-level.
