About this trip

The Huayhuash Trekking is located in the Cordillera of the same name in the Andes of Peru, is the second highest tropical mountain range in the world after the Cordillera Blanca, and the hike that crosses its entire mountain system is considered among the most beautiful treks on the planet.


In its 30 kms from north to south of this range, there are 7 mountains that exceed 6000 meters and 7 mountains over 5500 meters, among the most prominent peaks are the Yerupajá (6617 m), the second highest mountain in Peru and Siula Grande (6344 m), which achieved worldwide fame for being the scene of one of the most epic stories of survival of mountaineering and that was later captured in the book "Touching the void" by mountaineer Joe Simpson.

The Cordillera Huayhuash is also home to dozens of glacial lakes of incomparable beauty such as: Carhuacocha, Juhuacocha, Solterococha, Mitucocha, Juraucocha, among others, and a great diversity of flora and fauna.


Undoubtedly, the Huayhuash trekking is catalogued as the most beautiful alpine trekking in the world, for its beauty and the wildness of its mountains. Huayhuash is the scene of great feats of world climbing and even the history of Peru. Mountaineers from all over the world make the circuit to acclimatize and gain endurance before a peak of high altitude and complexity in the Cordillera Blanca.


The Huayhuash trekking is a magical and unmissable circuit for the landscapes that it offers every day and for the challenge of reaching the passes that exceed 4500 meters above sea level, even reaching 5000 meters above sea level. We have no more words to describe this impressive mountain range, come with us and discover first hand what Huayhuash has for you.

Together with 2 friends in May 2022, we decided to climb Pisco (5752m) and then Huascaran (6768m), in Perú, with AndeanRaju expeditions. From the very beginning the company impressed us with its professionalism and good preparation. Pablo put together a really strong team to make sure the expedition was going to be a success: Maite helped us with the acclimatization hikes, Pablo himself guided us on a 3-day tour to Pisco + Laguna 69 to start preparing for Huascarán. Finally, at Huascarán, the ultra experienced Eloy Salazar took over as guide and Paulino Maguina as aspirant guide took us to the top. Food was incredible during both climbs thanks to the incredible work of Juvenal. I really think that we ate better many days than at most restaurants in town. Needless to say that the strong porters (Ignacio, Willy, Edwin) and the Donkey Driver (Reinaldo) definitely contributed to the success of the expedition! Apart from excellent food, the tents were of good quality and spacious, at the base camps we had help of the donkeys to carry the heavy loads, there were kitchen and dinning room tents, and even a toilet tent. The whole trip was prepared with the highest standards and I cannot recommend enough Andean Raju Expeditions, they are the best! Thank you for allowing us to be the first team to conquer Huascarán in 2022 on 25/05/2022!
