|This site gives a description
of an expedition to the Cordillera Blanca of Peru that I took part
in during July and August 2003. I have attempted to provide
information that my be of some use to others planning trips to this
area in the future. I have provided internet links where possible or
known and also prices where known. Of course these were the prices
at the time of our trip and may have changed by the time you read
this! Sometimes prices are given in Sols and sometimes in US
Our intention on this expedition was
to climb several peaks by mainly easy routes. We unfortunately
suffered from some illness, minor injury and poor conditions which
limited what we could achieve but a good time was had by all.
This is a rough report on what we managed to achieve.
Here I have tried to outline what we took along and what you might
need to take and what is available there.
This section is primarily my initial planning stuff and includes
descriptions of areas and routes that we did not necessarily do.
However it is a good summary of some of the information out there
that may be of use to you
Summary of some useful contacts, accommodation etc. around Huaraz
Summary of some useful contacts, accommodation etc. around Lima
Summary of some useful contacts, accommodation etc. around Caraz
Summary of some of the maps you might find useful
This is my complete photo gallery but if you go to the Peru section
you will see images from this and an earlier trekking trip to Peru.
This is my company (I'm self employed) and since it is
"hosting" this site I have included a link :-)
