This short trek gives walkers the chance to enjoy some of the most stunning sections of the Cordillera Blanca in complete peace and serenity.
The trails are steep and narrow in parts, making it difficult for donkeys to pass (the day 2). The little-visited Quilcayhuanca Valley offers endless breath-taking mountain panoramas of imposing snow-caped peaks towering high above turquoise glacial lakes. Some of the most impressive flora and fauna of the Huascaran National Park can be seen on the trek, and the low number of visitors means that your chances of seeing herds of viscachas and the emblematic Andean condor are increased. The high pass and steep ascents make this trek a challenge at times, but if you are fit and healthy and wish to escape the crowds of trek Huayhuash or Santa Cruz, Quilcayhuanca to Cojup will not be disappointing.
Moderate to hard, the highest point is Paso Huapi (5000m/15405ft)

How many days do I need to aclimate in Huaraz BEFORE THE TREK?
It is very important to be well acclimated to the altitude before exerting yourself on a trek. We do recommend that you arrive to Huaraz at least 2 or 3 days before the trek starts to help you become acclimatized and avoid possible problems with altitude sickness while on the trek.
We can organize day hikes & other tours around Huaraz for your acclimatization:
If you have already been in another area of Peru at high altitude before arriving in Huaraz, we still recommend you have a complete day in Huaraz to rest, recover from your travel, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Huaraz before departing for the trek.
Hotels, bus before/after trek?
We can also organize transfers, hotels in Huaraz or other cities, packages in the rest of the country etc. If you would prefer more services, from the airport in Lima for example or a complete Peru travel package, please let us know.
