Mountain Climbing in the Cordillera Blanca
Four days biking and I arrived in Huaraz, outside the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, considered one of the more beautiful mountain ranges in the world. I found the best guide in Peru, Cesar Vargas, and we planned a mountaineering course up in the mountains. Three days of instruction in all aspects of mountaineering led to a summit climb of the Mountain Yanapaccha, Quechuan for Black Waterfall. It is another world up among the snow covered peaks of the Peruvian Andes mountains, and it left me hungry to explore some more. I departed alone on a three day trek of the famous Santa Cruz route, with breathtaking views every step of the way. If you have any interest in mountaineering or just seeing these beautiful mountains, Cesar Vargas is the guy to go to for direction (exploringandes.com).
