We can't imagine a better way to see Huayhuash than with Los Amigos de Huayhuash.
The mountains are beautiful and trekking there is a real treat. But what made our trip so fun and memorable was the service we received from Los Amigos de Huayhuash. They are a family business based in a village near the start of the trek. Anamin was our contact prior to arriving in Peru. She is extraordinarily helpful and friendly, answering all questions. And she organized everything (from pickup in Lima to a return bus back to Lima and all in-between) so smoothly, it was amazing. Our guides were her brother Aldolfo and cousin Dyer (who was our donkey driver). Both were so very friendly and supportive. It felt like hiking with friends. The food they cooked was plentiful and near gourmet fantastic. They let us set our own pace, while they pointed out wildlife and features of the land that they know very well and take obvious pride in sharing with others. We had never been on a guided trek before, but we shouldn't have been worried. The 14 day trek with Aldolfo and Dyer was a delight from start to finish (a great finish indeed with a homemade meal at Adolfo's village home).
