See some of the tallest mountains in Peru on the way.

Acclimatize for a day before starting the mini Huayhuash trek. Explore Lima, the capital of Peru. Learn more about local communities, visit the archaeological site of Chavin de Huantar and discover the turquoise waters of Paron Lake, the largest lake in the White Cordillera Mountain Range.

Start trekking the Cordillera Huayhuash circuit next. Traverse some of the most important areas of the circuit while leaving behind the rest in this mini trek. Enjoy beautiful sceneries along the way. From snow capped-peaks and mirror-like glacial lagunas to wild, untouched places, this trek will allow you to see the hidden gems of Peruvian highlands in a short duration.

“It was a well balanced trip that allows you to discover 3 completely different regions. It also helps to manage altitude sickness. Good balance also between "nature" visits, sites and cities . Everywhere we could appreciate the kindness of the premises in serene atmospheres. We were able to enjoy the free time that allows us to make our own discoveries at our own pace. Thanks you Terra Peru for your advice, reactivity, and the preparation of our trip which delighted us all.”
