Transcordillera , climbing Pequeno Alpamayo and Huayna Potosi

tab general

Activity Type: 

The Trans Cordillera is one of the more popular treks in the Cordillera Real in which you walk almost from one end to the other of this vast mountain range, crossing several passes and allowing you spectacular views of the Cordillera. Beautiful valleys, stunning glacial lakes and abundant wildlife make it a treat for the sense and on a cultural level we have the opportunity to meet remote indigenous communities largely untouched by modern society. Pequeño Alpamayo (5370m) is part of the Condoriri Massif and is one of the most popular peaks in the massif to climb – as well as being one of the most beautiful. After our accent of Pequeño Alpamayo we make our way south to climb Huayna Potosi. Technically an easy mountain, it’s still a challenge as is any peak over 6000m.
