Santa Cruz Trek, Peru

Noel Wigdor is a 21-year-old Canadian doing South America right.

On his travel blog he posted a trip report of a rainy, problematic adventure on the Santa Cruz Trek out of Huaraz, Peru:

Trekking the Andes – Santa Cruz

This is by far the most popular serious hike in the region and is indeed, as Noel tells, one of the best hikes in the world.
