Full description

Trekking Quebrada Quilqueyhuanca: A great short hike in a beautiful valley, far from other tourist routes. This tour is ideal for acclimatization for the next climb and is also appropriate for families or for those who are looking for an easy trip involving an excursion or camping, but who still want to experience the magnificent mountain landscapes of northern Peru. A special feature of this trek is the glacier-fed lakes. Toward the end of the valley are three lakes: Cayesh (4,500m), Tullpacocha (4,300 m), and Cuchilla (4,625m). These last two lakes are found at the foot of a great cirque of peaks that form the Chinchey Peak group (6,309m), to the southwest of this is Pucaranra Peak (6,156m), while toward the southeast areTuhhparaju (5,787 m) and Chopiraju (5,518 m). Found nestled in the interior of the Quicayhuanca valley is a large gorge, about 13 km long, that ends in a cirque of peaks over 6000m. The trail goes through pastures where cows, horses and burros abound; as well as a large number of archeological remains, which add to the allure of the route. It’s possible to see diverse wildlife, from small birds to curious foxes.

Quebrada Ishinca: Climb to Ishinca Peak, trekking journey in the Ishinca Valley. This is popular for climbers who want to bag a 5000 or 6000 meter peak, but because of the scenic beauty, this is a great climb even if you don’t reach the peak. In this hike, we have a riveting view of the massif that includes Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju, Ranrapalca, the Palcarajus and much more...
