I just did the Santa Cruz/Llanganuco Trek. It was absolutely gorgeous. The mountain scenery in the Cordillera Blanca is to die for, it is second only to the Annapurna in the Himalayas. Being so close to those snowy peaks, was absolutely out of this world. The camping was first class and the food delicious. Our staff was delightful and totally connected with my 6 year old who trekked approximately 50% of the distance (50km) and used his horse â€œPepeâ€ for the remaining 50%. He had his first go at trout fishing, we roasted marshmallows and swam in glacial lakes. It was sheer bliss and very affordable too.
Aracari highly reccommends trekking in the Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash in Northern Peru.
