A Challenging and Rewarding Peru Hiking Trip
Trekking is a heavy and messy business so you have got to be up for the challenge. If you’re someone who likes the comforts of home, this trek isn’t going to be suited for you.

Luckily, the Cordillera Huayhuash has been blessed by Mother Nature. Surrounded by the alpine range of the Yerupaja, you can expect to enjoy an experience like no other. Peace, serenity, and natural beauty are the major attractions here. Among the gorgeous scenery of lakes and mountains are some hot springs located right in the middle of the circuit. It’s the perfect reward after a hard trek! Just when you’re ready for a shower, you can enjoy a hot soak that relieves all your sore muscles and cleanses you thoroughly.
