trekking out of Huaraz, Peru

Huaraz is our #2 hiking town in the world. Yet many experienced hikers have never heard of the mountain city. It’s not easy to reach. 😦

We’ve just updated and moved our information pages on the top 3 treks out of Huaraz:

• Santa Cruz
• Alpamayo
• Huayhuash

All are tough, high altitude, life changing challenges.

Santa Cruz is the most popular, shortest and easiest of the three.

Click PLAY or watch Boundless Traveler’s 2012 Santa Cruz trek on YouTube.

Alpamayo is longer and tougher.

IridePow trekked Alpamayo in 2008 posting a terrific trip report with photos.

Of course there are many, many other great walks in the White Mountains of Peru.
