With thirty-three peaks over 5,500 meters and an estimated 260 glaciers, the Cordillera Blanca is the world’s highest and most glaciated tropical mountain range. It has been well known in the mountaineering community for more than 50 years. And today it’s fast becoming Peru’s hottest venue for outdoor adventure — mountaineering, rock climbing, trekking and mountain biking.
Huascarán National Park falls within the Cordillera Blanca, and its stunning turquoise lakes, shear rock faces and surrounding snow and ice covered peaks. The Park and near by Huayhuash Reserve are world class trekking destinations and offer several outstanding 4 to 14 day treks, including the Santa Cruz Valley and the unforgettable Alpamayo and Huayhuash circuits.
