"Meeting point for adventure seekers"
Trekking Cordillera Huayhuash
The Cordillera Huayhuash (Waywash Hanka in Ancash Quechua, waywash weasel, lies in the Andes of Peru. It is located in the boundaries of the Ancash Region, Lima Region and Huanuco Region.
The range is 30 km long and has Himalayan characteristics and its peaks are, morphologically speaking, much hillier and have more difficult access than those from the Cordillera Blanca. Aligned north to south, the main range of some twenty peaks stretches for approximately 25 km, with a subsidiary range of smaller peaks stretching out to the west for approximately 15 km. Six of the peaks exceed 6,000 m. Included among them are Yerupajá (6617 m), the second highest mountain in Peru (behind Huascarán at 6,768 m), and Siula (6,344 m), made famous by Joe Simpson in Touching the Void.
There are many lesser peaks surrounding those covered by ice, and several passes exceeding 5,000 m.
In 2002 the Peruvian Ministry of Agriculture declared the Huayhuash mountain range a "reserved zone" and prohibited certain economic activities, including any future mining.
Most of the walking and most of the campsites are above the 4,000 m tree line, so the landscape appears rugged and mountainous, affording views over very wide areas. The area is noted for its spectacular glacial lakes. Hot springs can also be found in the area. Condors, llamas, alpacas and vizcachas can be seen
