Huascaran National Park, Ancash, Peru

Weekend Snapshot

By Ben Brough (@ben__brough)

A week after landing in Peru, we set off to complete a short acclimatisation loop of the Huascarán National Park (a variance on the Northern Cordillera Blanca route from this site). We were treated to the biggest climbs, longest descents, and some of the most amazing mountain vistas we’ve ever experienced, along with the excellent trademark Peruvian hospitality and delicious food. We’re looking forward to the journey south on the Peru Great Divide!

An amazing sunset after just making it into the safety of this hut before a brutally windy thunderstorm. The Rennsteig is a great place for bikepacking. There’s a bike in there, I promise!
