Adventure Travel Agency Huascaran organised our 10 day trip with base camp to climb some of the peaks surrounding Q. Quilcayhuanca. Paulino organised everything to perfection, the cook he supplied was great an very flexible and the whole trip logistics went like clockwork. I wholeheartedly recommend using this company.

Stunning scenery and a place where you can keep away from hoards of people if you wish unlike many of the other great outdoor playgrounds (Nepal, Alps, etc). Trekked into the Ishinca valley from Pashpa - great views - in order to climb Ishinca and Urus. Go now before all of the snow disappears - its going fast - the... More

If you want to do hiking in Peru you should visit Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca. There are a bunch of day trips and hikes that will keep you in the mountains for several days or even weeks.

The views are simply stunning. When you wake up and look around, you are welcomed by a chain of mountains covered with snow. Really special.

My trek in the Cordillera Blanca was really amazing. Each day, we had such a stunning panorama on the white peaks, mainly over 6000 meters. For a trained people, it s doable without technic difficulties, we had also a guide, a cook, and 2 mules and the organization worked perfectly. I will clearly come back to try new routes. It...

Some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery in Peru, and relatively unknown among travelers. Plenty of options for trekking, anything from easy day treks to more technical treks that span several days and require a guide. I only spent ten days in the area, based out of Huaraz, could have spent another two weeks and not gotten bored.

The 180km long and 20km wide Cordillera Blanca, or ‘White Range’ is so called because of its numerous perennially ice-capped peaks and glaciers. It is the world’s highest tropical mountain range and has the greatest number of summits over 6000m outside the Himalayas, including Peru’s highest peak, Mount Huascaran (6768m). The experience of the Cordillera Blanca is one of dramatic... More
