The Most Beautiful Trek of the World

Huayhuash Alpine

The Alpine Circuit is not the standard, traditional, popular Huayhuash Circuit. The popular route is called the Valley Circuit, and is completed hundreds of times per year, usually with donkey support. By comparison, the Alpine Circuit is more demanding—no donkey support, technical terrain, no pathway to follow, Only a good mountaineering company can leader you over there. The first completion of the Alpine circuit took place in 2004. As of 2012, the Alpine Circuit had probably been completed only a few dozen times. This is a demanding route, with approximately 6000m of vertical gain and the same amount of loss over 80km, all with full mountain backpacks. On the Alpine Circuit, you are on your own. While much of the Alpine Circuit is essentially hiking, many cruxes demand mountaineering skills and experience, with two glacier crossings, steep, exposed terrain, rock and icefall hazard, and short technical rock steps. A 30m 8mm rope, a light axe, and lightweight crampons are recommended.

even  you are sure about whether you have the skills or experience for this route, DO NOT GO hiring a guide services and with a company specializing in adventure turism. Consider the Valley Circuit as an alternative. The best months to do it are May-September.. The route normally takes 8 days, with nearly every day involving a considerable effort.
