We did an 11 day trek in the Cordillera Huayhuash with Huascaran Adventure Travel (based in Huaraz) in early July.
Before the trek Paulino, the owner, responded promptly to all our email enquiries and was very helpful. We decided to allow ourselves a week in Huaraz to recover from jet lag and to acclimatise before the trek. Paulino helped us organise acclimatisation walks and tours during the week before the trek, organising a guide/taxis for us if necessary. He also managed to find others to join the trek with us.
The Huayhaush trek was amazing. Paulino’s quote was one of the cheaper ones we received, but everything was extremely well organised, the equipment was good, and our guide Miguel and our cook/arriero Samuel looked after us very well. Miguel offered us alternative routes some days, and was always keen to take us on the most scenic route. Samuel prepared heaps of excellent food. Both were cheerful, helpful and good company.
Weatherwise we had a bit of everything - rain, hail, snow, wind and a few sunny days - so you need to make sure you have appropriate gear. It's almost all over 4000 metres, so the nights in particular are pretty chilly. Scenery was spectacular - an unforgettable trek.
