Circuit Alpamayo Trekking
12 days
This is a tremendous trek which avoids the more frequented trails. It crosses a major pass almost every day as it encircles many of the great summits of the Cordillera Blanca, the triple peaks of Santa Cruz, Chacraraju, Pucajirca and of course Alpamayo. Our 12 day trek, preceded by some early acclimatisation days, is remarkably sustained and amazingly varied and always on good trails.
