Lets Go! Vamos!

Our Huaraz Hills Half Day Hike starts right from the city of Huaraz, offering nice views of mountains, deep valleys and down into the bustling city. 

First we hike through the city towards the cemetery of Huaraz. From here, we hike up until we come to an open ridge from where we have good views of Huaraz city, Huascaran and other mountains that are located along the Callejon de Huaylas Valley. We then come into a narrow canyon – a colourful canyon which takes us to the top of a pass that opens to great mountain views of the Cordillera Blanca and deep u-shaped valleys. We follow a very little used road along the top of the hills and then make an easy descent back to Huaraz city just in time for lunch. 4 hours walk
