Huaraz & Central Sierra


This part of Peru has the most hikes and some of the most intense mountain climbing in South America. The mountains near Huaraz are known as the Cordillera Blanca.


The only airport in the area is the small HUU just 30 min from the city of Huaraz. The May–September dry season is the most popular for climbing. During the December–March wet season the nearly constant rain and snow discourages most outdoor adventure seekers.
