Huaraz & Cordillera Huayhuash
Huaraz Cordillera Huayhuash–The City of Huaraz is the restless capital of this Andean adventure kingdom and its rooftops command exhaustive great panoramas of the city’s dominion: one of the most impressive mountain ranges in the world. Nearly wiped out by the earthquake of 1970, Huaraz is not going to win any Andean-village beauty contests anytime soon, but it does have personality, and personality goes a long way. Dip into the thermal baths Baños Termales de Monterrey. A series of small wells and two large pools have mineral-rich waters that make the water look dark brown and rather unappealing. Take a tour to admire the Pastoruri’s mountain beauty, and the other rugged mountains, glistening lochs, breathtaking vistas.
When hearing about Huaraz it is to hear of the Cordillera Huayhuash, which is a tightly bunched, sensational 18-mile long collection of high peaks in the Peruvian Andes. This trekker’s paradise is remote, wilderness, and stunningly gorgeous. The range is the home of Siula Grande ice peak (20,814′), the location of the famous mountaineering movie and book “Touching the Void.” Camp next to stunningly beautiful alpine lakes and in broad, grassy valleys with wildflowers and rushing alpine creeks. Get staring in awe up at the soaring, snow-laden Andes giants that tower above the trails and campsites with peaks at elevations above 20,000 feet! A journey around the entire range has more than 100 miles of hard, exhilarating walking, where thin-air passes link jagged mountains, azure lakes and vast skies. There are no less than 8 passes to cross, which ranges to 17,060 feet–Cordillera Huayhuash Loop Trekking.
