We’ve designed this special circuit for those with limited time in Huaraz. It is a short, or mini, tour that takes you to the heart of the remote Cordillera mountain range. Along this 50km circuit, you’ll have the opportunity to see the magnificent and towering mountains that reach upwards of 6,000m such as Yerupaja, Rasac, Hirishanca, Ninashanca, Rondoy and others. 

You’ll also spend time crossing beautiful Andean grasslands and mystical lakes that are sprinkled around the entire area. And be sure to keep an eye out for wondering alpacas! Are you ready for unreal panorama views, splendid sunsets and sunrises, beautiful glacier lakes, and huge sharp snowcapped peaks? Book below!


We are a group of photographers that wanted to do have special locations set up for sunrise and sunset and VSA made it happen! Highly recommend!
