Overview Itinerary Pricing


With new access roads into what is considered the most spectacular mountain scenery of Peru, we have developed this trek into the heart of the mountain range. It offers a new opportunity for those who don't have the time to do the longer, classic traditional route. A prerequisite however is to be well acclimatized since we gain altitude quickly!

This trek is 5 days of hiking.

There is an excellent transportation service between Lima and Huaraz, with multiple departures daily. Certain times of the year there are also flights in small planes from Lima to Huaraz. Check with us for schedules.

2018 set departures for the group rate are on Saturdays, April through October. You may combine this with the 4-day Cordillera Blanca trek for a 10-day expedition.

Minimum group size is 4 people. Groups of 2 or 3 trekkers have a surcharge of US$225 per person. Single travelers contact us for groups to join.
