CORDILLERA HUAYHUASH, PERÚ
09-14 AUGUST 2021
Welcome to a great photo expedition, that will have the scenery in the northern mountains of Peru:
The amazing Cordillera Huayhuash.
We will merge photography and trekking to reach wonderful locations, together with a great staff of photographers, who have a great knowledge of the key spots and with a logistics designed for photographers: sunrises, sunsets and also the starry nights under the milky way.
It is an event open to the general public, but we strongly recommend arriving in good health and physical condition to hike over 4,000 meters above sea level. For that purpose we have planned a first part of acclimatization in Huaraz City (3020 mts) where we will get around by car with some short walks.
Participants who feel they are not physically prepared may also request a personal horse to get help in the most demanding stages.
¡A great photo expedition into the heart of the Andes!
