PERU AND THE MOUNTAIN RANGES
Peru has 24 contrasting regions and ancient civilizations that offer a multitude of possibilities to get to know a beautiful country, and even more, to understand in depth the great number of pre-inca cultures that developed there. Among the chain of Andes, after Mt. Aconcagua and “Ojos del Salado,” the highest peaks are found in the Cordillera Blanca. From the Andean city of Huaraz, one can make out more than 30 snow-capped summits of more than 5,000 m. The highest of the mountains near Huaraz is 6,768 meters. It is the “roof” of Peru and the third highest on the continent. The trekking between the Gorges of Los Sedros – Alpamayo – Llanganuco and the complete circuit of the Cordillera Huayhuash allow you to go deep into the most beautiful landscapes of the Cordillera. The Inca road to Machu Picchu is, without doubt, one of the greatest itineraries of the world. The possibility of following the Incan footsteps on their road toward the mysterious city gives the satisfaction of experiencing and discovering a landscape replete with beauty and history. The historical and anthropological Peru can be found in Nazca and its mysterious lines; in the colonial cities of Areqipa and Cuzco; and in the indigenous markets of the Sacred Valley. The outdoor enthusiasts have the opportunity to visit the sea gardens of the Ballestas Islands, and navigate Lake Titicaca and the Amazon jungle in Peru.

Huaraz, capital of the Ancash region situated at 3,100 meters, is the principal city of the Huaylas mountain pass area. On May 31, 1970, Huaraz was almost totally destroyed by an earthquake and for this reason the city appears modern with ample streets and construction. Its climate is dry and temperate during the day and the nights are cold. The recommended season to visit and enjoy the outdoors and its mountains is from May to December. This time period is known as the ideal Andean summer to participate in the adventurous Andean sports and for tourism. Huaraz is 400 km north of the Peruvian capital and has all the modern services such as hotels, restaurants, pizza, travel agencies, clubs, international and local banks, etc.
