This is a challenging trek through beautiful landscape and remote wilderness. However, be very aware there are bandits in the remote areas (eg. near the hot springs) . If you travel in a group they will likely just demand protection money. If you are trekking...More

I did an 8 day trek. What can I say? Believe the hype. It is stunning. Every single day. And there are hot springs. Practicalities - You have to rank this trek under the 'hard' category due to not just the altitude but also the...More

Amazingly beautiful landscape, and a wonderful trek. It is more fun if you have flexibility and can take your time rather than having to rush out in the morning, hike nonstop all day, and set up camp in the dark. Leave time for photos, stop...More

One of the best hikes in the World. The opportunity to do the full circuit will not be available in the near future due to a mining development and so time is limited to experience this beautiful walk in it entirety. There's your excuse to...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
There is occasional mention of guard dogs, who may attack and bite, and concern about rabies. Is this enough of a risk on a guided Huayhuash Circuit trek to require (expensive) pre trip rabies vaccinnation? (if bitten you have to get rabies vaccinne as soon as possible anyway, whether pre- vaccinnated or not) if one needed emergency medical evacuation for this or any other concern, what is the longest it would take to get to modern medical care in Lima? or is there a hospital in Huaraz? do most people worry about rabies there? or is the risk so minimal as to not be a concern?
