The Trekking the Huayhuash Circuit tour starts and ends in Lima. The Trekking the Huayhuash Circuit is a trekking tour that takes 13 days taking you through Lima, Peru and other destinations in Peru.

Comparable to the Himalayas and the Rockies in terms of snow-capped alpine beauty, Peru’s Cordillera Huayhuash is a mountain climber's dream come true. Located in one of the most remote sections of the Andes, our abbreviated version of the circuit asks a lot from those who trek it. Rest assured that your mountain guide has all the expertise, equipment, and encouragement needed to get the most out of these majestic peaks. Great on its own, this trip gets even better when paired with a Machu Picchu trek or any other Peru-based adventure.
