Cordillera Huayhuash is a spectacular mountain range tucked away in central Perú. While it’s a bit harder to access than its bigger sister – Cordillera Blanca – a visit is at least equally rewarding.

Just like the book, Cordillera Huayhuash is not for the faint hearted, but I’m sure that those who dare to go will be blown away by an adventure surrounded by fantastic alpine landscapes. For the ultimate firsthand experience you can trek around the mountains on a 12 day circuit, which takes you high up and on eye level with some of the most beautiful peaks of South America.
