What to Expect
Suggested Itinerary:
Day 1: Huaraz / Hualcayan village
Our Andes Travel Expeditions team will pick you up from your hotel after breakfast and start heading out for our 5 hour comfortable van ride heading north to the village of Hualcayan village situated at 9,514ft / 2900m where our donkeys and Arrieros will be waiting for us. Overnight at our camp at Hualcayan.
 Day 2: Hualcayan / Wishcash
After breakfast we begin our continuous climb up a “switch back” trail from the village of Hualcayan to Wishcash 14,108 ft / 4300m hiking for approximately 4 to 5 hours. Overnight at our camp at Wishcash.
 Day 3: Wishcash / Ruinapampa
From Wishcash we continue our trek ascending to the spectacular lake Laguna Cullicocha 15,912ft / 4850m where we cross our first high Pass named Osoruri 15,584ft / 4750m. From this beautiful high pass, we begin our long descent to our next camp at Ruinapampa 12,467 ft / 3800m with an approximately 8 - 9 hour hike.
 Day 4: Ruinapampa / Cruze Alpamayo
A fairly easy relaxed day trekking while ascending easily up the valley to our next camp at Cruze Alpamayo 13,615ft / 4150m. This day includes approximately 3 - 4 hours of hiking.
 Day 5: Cruze Alpamayo / Day Rest
This can be an optional day on the trek so as to spend an additional night at our Cruze Alpamayo camp to just chill-out appreciating the superb views of Alpamayo. With this additional day in the high Andes, we can trek to Laguna Jancarurish or visit the Alpamayo Base Camp 14,764ft / 4500m.
 Day 6: Cruze Alpamayo / Safuna or Huilca
This sixth day is long and demanding hike as we ascend up to the windswept Paso Cara Cara 15,846ft / 4830m from where we capture even more breathtaking panoramic views of Alpamayo and the surrounding lakes. From this vantage point we then continue our trek to our next Paso Mesapata 14,764ft / 4500m before descending to our next camp at Laguna Safuna 13,780ft / 4200m. Today’s trek is approximately 7-8 hours. We have the option to camp at Huilca which is about 1 hour further distance from Safuna. Our trekking guide and our clients can decide on this option depending on the group’s level of fitness.
