Huayhuash, Peru 2016

The plan is to do the Huayhuash FULL circuit hike starting and finishing in the town of Llamac. Maybe with mules, but depends on weight and if we can distribute load between hikers. I am flexible, but want to go independent without all the guide companies (so inflexible on that aspect!).

I did the Cachora to Choquequirao to Machu Pichu self sufficient and organizing as I went. While I did that trek solo, I would have liked some company to share the hike. Fully bilingual in Spanish/English. Experienced male hiker, 40s, very fit, but easy going. My style is I’ll adapt to others’ pace.

Looking for like minded partners who want to share the experience and want an independent approach without all the bells and whistles of guide companies.

Write if you are interested and we can have a chat.

  1. Hi Chris – I’ve sent you a private message. Let me know if you do not receive it. I’m currently in Peru and interested in hearing more about your trip.

  2. Hi there,
    I will be in Huaraz next week and perhaps we can connect about doing this trek together. I will be in Peru for a while and am planning on various trek, hopefully independently, so if not this one, maybe another one?

    Here’s hoping you have arrived to great weather, safe travels.
    Best wishes from windy, rainy London where there are no mountains,

    • Hi Dinesha – thank you for the email. I would love to connect about a trek. I am thinking that the Santa Cruz trek (shorter, possibly less challenging) might be a good one for starters. I have found a company that looks descent, and reasonably priced, though would be awesome to meet in person and compare notes on what we would like to do. I should be in Huaraz about the 12th or 13th of May. Currently in Cusco. I am going to send you a private message with my email. If you do not receive it let me know and I will post on this more public spot. When do you arrive in Huaraz?

  3. YEHAAA you can do backpacking by yourself or with a partner, trail is safe, clear, free and you can do with not guide 100% by yourself… you can find trekking partners at Santa Cruz Trek hostel in Huaraz for free solo travellers, aproach to it
