Itinerary

Day 1Huaraz – Olleros – Sacracancha:

Our trekking of Peru central andes, starts with collection from hotel, and drive through the the Callejón de Huaylas,, for about 40 minutes to the tiny picturesque village of Olleros (oh year oos), where we will meet up our llamas, or donkeys. After our Arrieros (pack animal driver). load our gear & supplies; we begin our trek heading towards Sacracancha (4080m/13,386ft), stopping for lunch along the Rio Negro (black river).

At the end of our first day, we have had walked about 5 hours, observing scenic views (8kms/5miles), and then camp our first night, at Sacracancha  which is a beautiful lake, with the views of the peaks of Shaqsha, Uruashraju, Rurec and Tuctupunta.

Day 2:Sacracancha – Shoncopampa: 

After a hearty breakfast we will begin our approximately 3 hour trek ,ascending up to Yanashallash pass (4700m/13,380ft), from where you will be strategically positioned, to fully appreciate the spiraling peaks of Huantsan (6395m/20,981ft), Rurec (5700m/18,701ft) and Uruashraju (5722m/18,773ft).

Watching closely you may see; the rare Andean Condor soar effortlessly overhead. From the top of Yanashallash pass, you will potentially be able to view, our pre-Inca stone trail descending down in switch-backs (zig-zags).

As we cross over at this point, from the valleys of Callejon de Huaylas, to the Callejon de Conchucos; we will then head in the valley, where the ancient Chavin de Huantar Temple is located. From this point we will trek for 2 or 3 more hours, to get our second campsite in Shoncopampa (3850m/12,631ft), after trekking a total of 13 km / 8 miles over 6 – 7 hours.

At Shoncopampa you will probably see local peasant children, seeking treats and just curiously; saying hello. (giving candy to these children, is not recommended nor is it fair to them, since they do not have access to dentist; pens and/or paper are valued, and appreciated by them).

Day 3:Shoncopampa – Chavin de Huantar- Huaraz:

After an enjoyable breakfast, we leave our camp at Shoncopampa, and continue descending down following the ancient, and historic Inca trail system, towards Chavin.

By early afternoon after trekking 11 kms/6.8 miles, in approximately 5 to 6 hours, we will finish our trek as we arrive at the archaeological site of Chavín de Huántar, situated at 3150m/10,335ft. Here we will enjoy, few hours of exploring the temples, and courtyards of this ancient structure, that is from around 1500 to 300 BC.

We’ll end up our trip, with a short visit to Quercos’ thermal baths, before our private transportation returns us to Huaraz. On the way back to Huaraz, we will pass through the Cahish tunnel, the highest elevation tunnel in the world at (4516m/14,816ft) then pass by Laguna Querococha (3980m/13,058ft) before arriving back at your hotel at 9:00 PM.
