Overview

Book
The Cordillera Blanca is an apt name for this range, with its snow-fluted summits, knife-edge ridges, tumbling glaciers, blue mountain lakes and steep-sided valleys; this spectacular 10-day trek will take you on a high and wild tour of the range as we traverse around its most beautiful peak, the distinctive, pyramid shaped, Alpamayo. After a short overnight stop in Lima, we follow the Pan-American Highway to the mountain town of Huaraz to begin this most picturesque of Peruvian trekking holidays. Brimming with the buzz of fellow trekkers, Huaraz provides a great base for our two acclimatisation walks. Departing Huaraz, we then take a short transfer to the start of our trek, where we will spend the next nine nights under canvas, supported by our expert Andean trek crew. Crossing high passes, following ancient Andean-trails and passing through Quechuan communities. This is a superb trek, which provides a succession of simply stunning views of Mt Huascaran (6768m), Mt Taulliraju (5830m) and Mt Rinrijirca (5808m). The centrepiece of this trekking holiday is undoubtedly our visit to base camp of the pyramidal peak, Alpamayo (5947m). Ranked to be one of the most spectacular treks in the world, this high level trail through the Peru's Cordillera Blanca is likely to provide one of the most satisfying of trekking holidays!
