This trek is a magical journey into a remote and beautiful unspoilt area of the Codillera Blanca not known to many other trekking groups. We follow an ancient pre Inca route and are treated to fantastic mountain views, waterfalls many small crystal blue mountain lakes and traditional Andean mountain villages.
On the return from the trek finish to Huaraz we stop to visit the archaeological site of Chavín de Huántar which was the centre of the Chavín culture, the oldest major culture in Peru existing from around 1000 to 300 BC. The site of Chavín de Huántar is an incredible feat of engineering, with most of the construction being built underground in an extensive labyrinth of interconnecting chambers and tunnels. This trek offers an exciting mix of trekking through beautiful countryside with local culture and ancient history.
