Overview Itinerary Pricing


Day 1 : Day hike in the hills above Huaraz with beautiful views of the Cordillera Blanca.

Visiting: Huaraz

Leaving from Huaraz by vehicle, we take a 20-minute ride to the village of Marian. From here, a two hour hike past fields and farms will bring us to Willcawain--an archaeological site of the Recuay-Wari culture (dating to the 800-400 B.C.). We will visit the complex and have lunch in the vicinity. On the trail, we will observe the snow-capped peaks of Vallunaraju, Ranrapalca, Churup and San Juan that surround Huaraz. We pass fields tended by campesinos with their adobe houses clustered in this patchwork of land. This is a unique day in the outskirts of Huaraz and a good warm-up for trekking in the Cordillera Blanca or Cordillera Huayhuash! You will end at the village of Monterrey and can take advantage of the hot springs baths there (optional).
