Our huayhuash Circuit trek is a wonderful and challenging high altitude trek, which should not be taken lightly. When going to a low oxygen environment. You need to ascend slowly giving yourself time to adapt. Acclimatization to the lack of oxygen is the real key to success. Because of this, we have added an extra days to this trek at the critical point of the acclimatization process, which is giving us greater safety on our trips. Check out some training advice.
We will also cover the daily distances on the trail at a very slow and steady pace, in order to aid the acclimatization process.
