Cordillera Blanca: Llama Trek

Back to Journey Latin America

Trip code: 329

Price from: On Request

This trek departs from the trekking town of Huaraz.

The moderately demanding hike offers the opportunity to hike with llamas, which carry your camping equipment and add a bit of local colour. The hike passes through the Cordillera Blanca’s fertile glacial valleys, icy crags and hardy forests, mirror-sharp lakes and streams.

You will camp at over 4,000m, hike along ancient trails and visit isolated traditional communities. The hike ends at the lower-lying, pre-Inca archaeological site of Chavín de Huantar. The ancient (800BC) Chavín culture is one of the most artistically advanced in Peru. The site comprises a complex of terraces with.squares, walls and columns adorned with the ornate sculptures of symbolic figures, animals and deities. 

You can also visit Chavín while based at Huaraz, market town and tourist centre. Enjoy a full day tour to Chavín de Huantar, . From Huaraz  we also recommend a day trip to Callejon de Huaylas and the brilliant turquoise Lake Llanganuco at the foot of Huascaran, Peru’s highest peak (6,768m).
