A dramatic high altitude trek in the Andean range made famous in Joe Simpson's 'Touching the Void'
The small yet magnificent Huayhuash Range is richly glaciated, steep and dramatic, and is home to Peru's second highest peak, Yerupaja (6634m). This demanding trek around the range is one of the world's most spectacular mountain circuits, and the true walking enthusiast is rewarded with unequalled views of its turquoise glacial lakes, jagged snow-capped peaks and stunning hanging glaciers that extend thousands of metres from the peaks.
What makes this trip responsible?
Whilst on the trek, we employ camp staff and mule wranglers from the local communities to ensure we contribute directly to the regional economy. Our local partners in Peru hold an ISO 14001 certification for their environmentally sound practices and meet the sustainable tourism requirements of the Rainforest Alliance.
