Explore the Cordillera Huayhuash on this 9-day adventure through one of the most impressive regions of the Peruvian Andes. This is one of the lesser-known and uncrowded treks due to the remote location of this beautiful mountain range.
Peru 9-Day Trekking Tours & Itineraries
In nine days you could plan a typical hiking excursion to Peru’s flagship tourist attraction, Machu Picchu. However, if you want a more culturally immersive experience, consider a journey that combines hiking the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu while overnighting in homestays and spending time with indigenous residents. If you’re looking for something altogether different, travel to the northern Peruvian Andes and trek around the Cordillera Huayhuash range, stopping in indigenous villages, camping by mountain lagoons, and even taking a dip in an icy glacial lake.
