Cordillera Negra Hike (Tour by Car or Easy Hike)
A delightful easy hike which offers spectacular views over the entire range of the snow capped Cordillera Blanca. First we travel on a new road which winds it way up through many small villages to the pass Punta Callan at 4225m from where there are unequalled views of the peaks, glaciers and valleys of the Cordillera Blanca.. We then hike down, easily follow local village trails all the way down hill, passing by traditional village houses and farms and can enjoy seeing the local traditional way of life. In July and August it is harvest time and everyone is busy harvesting and gathering crops. It is an easy 2 hour walk down to a village where our vehicle will be waiting to take us back to Huaraz.
For those not wishing to hike, we can take the car to the saddle where we can appreciate the amazing views of the Cordillera Blanca mountains, of Huaraz and also out to the Pacific coast and then return to Huaraz.
