Huaraz & The Cordillera Blanca

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. Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca have been well known in the mountaineering community for more than 50 years. Today the area is fast becoming Peru’s hottest venue for outdoor adventure — mountaineering, rock climbing, bouldering, trekking and mountain biking.

Most of the Cordillera Blanca falls within Huascarán National Park and it’s stunning turquoise lakes, shear rock faces and surrounding snow and ice covered peaks. Huascarán National Park and the near by Huayhuash Reserve are world class trekking destinations and offer several outstanding 4 to 10 day treks, including the Santa Cruz Valley and the unforgettable Alpamayo and Huayhuash circuits.
