Peru's Cordillera Huayhuash is spectacular! We're already talking about going back, and when we do, Los Amigos de Huayhuash will be our first email. These outfitters are terrific in every way. They impressed us from the get-go with excellent communication in the months before the trip and top-rate logistic coordination, starting with Anamin meeting us as the Huaraz bus depot.... More

Trekking the Huayhuash is absolutely amazing! The peaks surrounding the trek are so beautiful that at times, I found I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Absolutely breathtaking views! We booked our trip with Los Amigos de Huayhuash, three brothers that work hard to make this an incredible experience for each and everyone. We were so fortunate to be with... More

This is a challenging trek through beautiful landscape and remote wilderness. However, be very aware there are bandits in the remote areas (eg. near the hot springs) . If you travel in a group they will likely just demand protection money. If you are trekking solo they will certainly rob you. I had my camera, head torch, money and other... More

We visited the Cordillera Blanca in 2000 and met a guide who works all over the world, when asked what her favorite trek was, the answer was Cordillera Huayhuash. This trek has been on our wish list for 16 years!! It was worth every moment of the wait. We've done a lot of trekking - in the U.S., lots in... More

I did an 8 day trek. What can I say? Believe the hype. It is stunning. Every single day. And there are hot springs. Practicalities - You have to rank this trek under the 'hard' category due to not just the altitude but also the terrain and duration. - September is the beginning of the rainy season, and already there...

Amazingly beautiful landscape, and a wonderful trek. It is more fun if you have flexibility and can take your time rather than having to rush out in the morning, hike nonstop all day, and set up camp in the dark. Leave time for photos, stop for lunch at the summit, spend an extra day at the hot springs- it is... More

One of the best hikes in the World. The opportunity to do the full circuit will not be available in the near future due to a mining development and so time is limited to experience this beautiful walk in it entirety. There's your excuse to get going and savour the moments up close to breathtaking mountains and the adventure of... More

in July 2015 we went on a 16 day hiking trip around the cordillera Huayhuash with Los amigos de Huayhuash, and it was truly amazing. 6 months earlier we decided we wanted to go to Peru and make a long hike, but without booking everything through an agency or other “people in the middle”.

Nat Geo was right, this is one of the most beautiful treks in the world. I recommend you go through Go2Andes and ask for Diojenes/Christian and Denise as your guides. Awesome people who take care of you as you were family. The food cooked by Denise was 5 star quality and it is all organic. Diojenes was a great guide... More

The best trek I have done in my South America travels so far. Amazing views every day and such an incredible place. I went with Enjoy Huayhuash.
