Huayhuash Cordillera


Cordillera Huayhuash

Located in the southern part of the Cordillera Blanca (White mountain range), this group of hills is one of the most beautiful places of the Peruvian Andes.  Because accessing the range is very difficult, it has remained untouched. Among its peaks, the most remarkable is the Yerupaja (6,634 meters/21,759 ft above sea level), the second highest mountain of the country. It is ideal for practicing mountaineering and trekking. In addition, there are several lagoons of incredible beauty in the area (Carhuaconcha, Viconga and Jahuacocha), with warm valleys and rich wildlife.
