Is it for me? - (4 days trekking)

  • Ideal for all adventure lovers.
  • This impressive trek is ideal for all adventure lovers, who want to be involved in adventure journeys and those ready to live a unique adventure experience.
  • It is more suitable for adventurous trekkers, who can adapt easily to a higher altitude and longer lengths because it requires considerable physical condition & previous acclimatization process to the altitude.


  • Not allowed for pregnant women.
  • Not suitable for climbers with heart problems.
  • Not allowed for climbers with knee problems because it requires being in shape.
Tips on Getting Acclimatize

Getting acclimatization is really quite easy. In fact, it is unavoidable if you just pass the time at altitude. You can't help yourself. After a couple of nights sleeping at 3000 meters (10,000 feet) try to move up to a higher elevation to sleep.

Things to avoid:

  • Strenuous exercise upon arrival at altitude is generally a bad idea.
  • Light exercise, such as walking is much better. If you have just arrived in Huaraz
  • Sleeping medications should be avoided until you are sure that you are not suffering
  • From any symptoms of Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS).
  • Confusing one illness for another is a common occurrence. Dehydration can bring on headaches, a symptom also common to AMS. While AMS, in severe cases can cause nausea and even vomiting, it does not cause stomach cramps or diarrhea
Suggestion for novice & responsible hikers:

If you are planning to visit our region, you can maximize what you can do? How you can enjoy it with better health? You should make a good acclimation process, as soon as you visit our highland region to avoid the dangerous altitude sicknesses, because, from our own experience, we understand the main point of interest is what our clients need to feel safe and comfortable away from their home.
For example, novice climbers must follow the next procedure:

  • Begin with a light day hike as laguna wilcacocha, laguna llaca, or laguna radian whatever is a nice idea.
  • For the second day of acclimatization is laguna churup, laguna 69, and others around Huaraz.
  • Finally, pass to multi-day treks can be a week or a couple of weeks sleeping in a tent, thus treks might be (treks Santa Cruz, Huayhuash circuit or Cedros Alpamayo)
Guiding Ratio on trekking classic Huayhuash

For moderate – hard trek difficult, we estimate 5 by 1, which means a maximum of five or six clients for the guide, for the difficulty of the route to evacuate in emergency cases, because, trekking in large groups of more than five will be accompanied by additional guides (assistant guide), as necessary. We consider that for the safety of the group.

Best time:
  • End of May – begin of September. Considered the best time, suitable for taking scenic pictures of landscape with blue sky. Besides are ideal months for adventure lovers, who want to practice, mountaineering & other outdoor pursuits.
  • October - November (intermediate season) months in which sometimes after 2:00 pm you can have rain in the afternoon.
  • December - March (rainy season) mixed weather, sunny & cloudy, which means sometimes sunny during the day and rain in the afternoon. Take your precautions (wear rain clothes & poncho).
The weather is very variable, even in the dry season from May - September it can rain as a result of global warming and the effects of climate change. During the day it can vary from warm to very cold temperatures, including rain and strong wind or snow at more than 4600 meters.

We offer uncommon routes in places where there are no large groups only upon client request. Here are some great trip programs, just click on this web page.

Small groups

We are focused on organizing small private groups to give a first-class (personalized) service on tours, multi-day treks, and climbing expeditions to provide a memorable experience for adventure lovers. "You are on vacation - We are here to make your trip something very special." In small private groups, our professional guides can provide each client with the personalized attention they deserve.

No Single Supplements (personal tent)

If you join one of our adventure expeditions as a single person, we will match you with other travelers of the same gender without additional charge. However, if you want an individual occupation or supplement (a personal tent), we can also arrange that for a small additional charge.

We look after our guides, porters, cooks, and muleteers.

We want to make sure that you have a great unforgettable experience during the development of our programs, however, it is also important that everyone involved in the operation of our treks is well treated humanely and cared for (not exploitation), and that the benefits it provides Tourism be shared Throughout the Peruvian communities. All our porters, cooks, and muleteers, sleep in a shared sleeping tent that has a waterproof floor, besides they have access to any first aid equipment if necessary. we consider this to have a humane and fair treatment of human beings, (many companies in the Cordillera Blanca do not practice this important item instead practice it, they try to reduce their salary, and increase their work under non-human treatment, which is visible if you want to decide to make any trek or climb in this region). We can guarantee that our guides, porters, cooks, and muleteers are well treated, receive a fair wage, are well paid according to the price established in each place, where develops the adventure activities, & they have also warm dry accommodation and plenty of nutritious hot meals to eat. This is concerning our program rate is a bit expensive compared to others the reason is here: (fair salary, good client service and humane treatment of staff).
Of course, many other trekking companies in Huaraz will tell you this, just only for selling their programs. However, there are fewer than a handful of companies that genuinely care about their staff.

We take care of our transport animals (donkey, horse)

We focus highly on the protection of our transport animals since they are the other fundamental piece for the correct development of trekking & climbing expeditions, the maximum weight is 35 - 40 kilograms for each animal, therefore we use in our expeditions the necessary amount of animals, according to the number of participants and group luggage. As for the staff, many other trekking companies in Huaraz will tell you this for selling their programs. However, in reality, it is completely different & if you buy with these companies, you will see during the trek those animals are carrying more than 50 kilos, outside the limit of their capacity. Furthermore, you will watch a large group of 10 - 12 people using just only 4 - 5 donkeys for transferring personal and group luggage + and all food supplies, just a day before the departure of your trip, you will be announced that the luggage limit is no more than 5 kilos per person including your sleeping bag. This means if your luggage weight is more than five kilos you need to add an extra payment for extra cargo animals or in another hand, you have to carry in your personal backpack (something that was not planned by you and never was advertised before your booking).
