Around the Alpamayo

6 06 2010

From Cusco we hopped to Lima (one hours flight) to drive north to Huaraz, a small town in the Cordillera Blanca – also called the “Chamonix of Peru”.  More than 20 mountains over 6000m (19700 ft) were waiting for us. We did a 9 day hike around the Alpamayo (130 km, 90miles, with one or two passes every day) and are now back in Huaraz. Today we take a bus back to Lima – to fly home on monday.

A little detour to the Alpamayo basecamp.

Day 2 of the Alpamayo Circuit. Amazing glaciers all around the camp.
