Lima, Ica, Huacachina & the Huayhuash
Lima, Ica, Huacachina & the Huayhuash: Incorporating Lima & Huaraz
Beginning in Lima; you’ll head to the coastal town of Ica for some local wineyard sampling for the day. Following this; you’ll head to Huacachina; the very definition of a “desert oasis”. Then you’ll experience a sandboarding adventure on the surrounding desert dunes.
Then it’s on to Huaraz: Mini-Huayhuash Trek – 3 Days. The shortened 3 day Mini-Huayhuash trek allows you to experience an abbreviated version of the longer trek; whilst not compromising on the stunning views.
As an aside; this route is a little more demanding than the more classic Santa Cruz trek route. It is considered to be suitable for novice trekkers and hikers; however ensuring that a program of acclimatisation is followed properly before departure. During the trek you will be rewarded with a series of glacial lakes and snow capped nevadas along the way.
This 3 Day trek is centred around the incredible Jahuacocha Lake area; considered one of the most scenic places in alpine trekking, to trek and camp out. Along the route you’ll see the important sights of the Cordillera Huayhuash; hit the Rondoy Valley; scale the impressive Sambunya Pass and experience the beautifully natural Jahuacocha Lake.
Thus; you’ll spend a final night in Huaraz. Then; heading onwards to Lima for your connecting flights. It’s never goodbye, only until the next time!
