Overview Itinerary Pricing


Day 1 : Full day hike in the beautiful Huascaran National Park

Visiting: Cordillera Blanca

In the heart of the Huascaran National Park lies the Llanganuco valley, at the foot of Peru?s highest peak, Mt. Huascaran (6,768 m / 22,204 ft). Our day begins with the drive from Huaraz to the starting point of our hike at Quebrada Demanda, where we will have amazing views of the icy peaks of Huandoy, Chacraraju and Pisco. After a picnic lunch we will take a leisurely walk around the edge of one of two big glacial lakes on the valley floor and descend the Mara Jos path down to the roadhead, among a beautiful quenua forest, an Andean old-growth tree. Enroute back to Huaraz, we will stop at an ice cream parlor in Charaz.
