Ishinca - Aquilpo trekking

Ishinca - Aquilpo trek

Few people take the short Ishinca-Aquilpo trek, despite the superb mountain vistas. First, we trek through the Ishinca Valley, before crossing over the Ishinca Pass (4800m) with its magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. Later we descend into the Aquilpo Valley, which is lush with vegetation and studded with waterfalls.

If you want to enjoy the beauty of the Peruvian Andes in complete peace and quiet, then this is the trek for you. The scenery along the way is equal in beauty to that of the famous and often crowded Santa Cruz trek.
