THE ULTIMATE HIKE AROUND PERU’S MOST BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN
- Spectacular Cordillera Blanca mountains
- A challenging circuit trek in the Andes
- Peru’s beautiful peaks & remote valleys
- Experience Quechua Indian culture
- Guided sightseeing around Huaraz
The Alpamayo Circuit Trek, in the northern region of the beautiful Cordillera Blanca, is considered as one of the world’s most spectacular high-mountain hiking routes. Our route offers up-close views of the almost perfectly pyramidal north face of Alpamayo, which is considered one of the world’s most beautiful mountains.
You’ll gain a true sense of accomplishment when completing this gorgeous-beyond-words trek. Along the circuit your efforts will be rewarded with amazing views of spectacular glacial peaks, crystalline and colorful glacial lakes, dizzyingly high passes, pastoral scenes of verdant farmland, and traditional Andean villages. We’ll have the chance to savor the unique experiences of meeting and interacting with the local Quechua people going about their daily activities, including herding alpacas and sheep and performing agricultural chores; while dressed in the colorful garb typical of these regions, such as hand-woven ponchos and earflap chullo hats.
