If you want to go an adventure of a lifetime, be surrounded by tall mountains and pristine alpine lakes, this one is for you. This trek is not for the faint hearted or a beginner hiker. It can very well put to test your trekking skills and the ability to hike at higher altitudes. If you are up to the challenge, this can most certainly be one of your most rewarding experiences.
The entire length of the Cordillera Huayhuash ranges only 30 km but within this compact area lay amazing towering peaks. At almost every turn, you come face to face with glistening vertical walls of ice, snow and rock, beautiful lakes and different kind or birds. Keep an eye out for the massive Andean Condors and for Siula Grande (6,344m), the location where the actual plot for popular book and shooting for one of the greatest documentaries of all time, "Touching the Void", took place!
The price of $700 per person is for groups of 5 or more. Pricing for groups of 3-4 would be $1,000 per person and groups of 2 people would be $1,500 per person.
