Trekking in the Cordillera Real 11 days 10 nights

 

The system of the Cordillera Real is very unique; we start entering the mountain range in the Illampu-Ancohuma and ending in Lake Hankokhota

These mountains are the result of a disorderly and abrupt geographical feature, this chain of mountains resemble a "confusing labyrinth" where the mountains seem to change shape quickly because of the shadows, the position of the sun, and its height or distance from the point of observation and it is precisely this characteristic that induces us to continue, at the beginning of this program we will find ourselves crossing a good portion of the Cordillera Real de los Andes, passing through the valleys that run between the main peaks and crossing the passages high (apachetas). These spectacular steps present views of hundreds of peaks in the surrounding area
