Aspen, CO, August 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- One World Trekking, an industry leader in Himalayan adventure travel since 1988, is branching out into high peaks of the Peruvian Andes. From May 25 to June 15, 2012, One World is offering the high-level, challenging traverse across the Cordillera Huayhuash. "The Huayhuash is one of the world's most rugged mountain ranges outside the Himalayas," states One World owner Andy Crisconi. "The range has about twenty peaks with six peaks exceeding 6,000 meters in height," Andy continues.
This is a high altitude trek and it is necessary to travel a considerable distance from the central range to find ground lower than 10,000 feet. The areas surrounding the Cordillera Huayhuash are sparsely populated, with only small shepherd's hamlets scattered around the 4000 meter mark. "This is a very challenging trip but incredibly rewarding experience," says Andy. "Because of its remoteness and number of days at high altitude, fewer people trek the Huayhuash than the nearby Cordillera Blanca or the famous Inca Trail," Andy continues.
The circuit generally takes about fourteen days with most of the walking and most of the campsites above 13,000 feet. The landscape is rugged and mountainous, affording spectacular views over the wide valleys and up to the giant snow-capped peaks.
