Day 1

Leaving Huaraz city heading to the north of the Callejon de Huaylas we descend by a road to Caraz (2300 m/7546 ft), then from this place we begin to ascend towards the Cordillera Blanca to the small town of Cashapampa (2900 m/9514 ft), where we meet up with our mountain staff: guides, cooks, muleteers, etc. and begin the walk having loaded up our donkeys. We begin the trek heading up the Santa Cruz valley to set up our first camp in Llamacorral

We continue the trek up Santa Cruz's wide valley, passing Ichiccocha and Jatuncocha lakes; we arrive at Quisuar where we can make a diversion towards Alpamayo base camp via the Arhuaycocha valley, with splendid views of the peaks of Quitaraju (6040 m/19816 ft), Alpamayo (5947 m/19511 ft), Artezonraju (6025 m/19767 ft) and others.
