Huaraz

 

 

Huaraz in northern Peru is one the world's premier trekking and climbing destinations. It is the starting point for some amazing and world famous treks like the incredible Huay Huash circuits  - considered by most as one of the top 2 or 3 treks in the world. There are also easier, shorter options that also offer incredible Andean mountain views with the popular Santa Cruz trek being the most common options.

The surrounding area is also home to a large number of popular mountains to climb with the Cordillera Blanca, Cordillera Huay Huash and Cordillera Raura all offering a variety of peaks with the most popular being in the Cordillera Blanca. Perhaps the most famous and beautiful of these is Alpamayo with its wonderfully asthestic pyramid shape but the 6768m Huascaran mountain is highest mountain in Peru and is a popular mountain to climb, as it is not extremely technical on some routes.
