Tour description provided by Viator

Huayhuash Alpine Route (10 Days) • Duration: 10 Days • Altitud: 5240 msnm • Route: Huayhuash Alpine Route • Difficulty: Moderate • Season: May - September • This alpine route is one of the most recommendable trails in The Huayhuash Mountains because it´s an incredible adventure. It traverses the base of some magnificent ice pyramids. This trail is more demanding then the classic Huayhuash route: we don’t use mules, although we still have porters that will carry the food, tents, and take care of the service.
