Pictures from around Cordillera Huayhuash circuit in Peru, one of the worlds most spectacular treks. It is considered quite a challenge and is undoubtedly far more demanding than the famous Inca Trail in the south of Peru.
Most of the walking, and most of the campsites, are above the 4000 m tree line, so the landscape appears rugged and mountainous, affording views over very wide areas. The area is noted for its spectacular glacial lakes. Hot springs can also be found in the area. Condors, llamas, alpacas and viscachas can be seen.
Six of the peaks exceed 6000 m. Included among them are Yerupajá (6617 m), the second highest mountain in Peru (behind Huascarán at 6768 m), and Siula Grande (6344 m), made famous by Joe Simpson in "Touching the Void".
