This summer will be my third time to the Cordillera Blanca and Huaraz (it's either here or Bolivia, leaning toward the Blanca), but I'd like to help acclimatize by backpacking in the Cordillera Huayhuash. I can't believe I haven't visited yet. I am trying to accumulate some information, so has anybody out there trekked in the range?
I am willing to hire some people locally once I arrive in Huaraz, but just trying to get an idea of a guide is a good idea or it's possible to do it solo. I'd like to weight both options. Is public transportation pretty straightforward from Huaraz?
Any information would be great. Thanks.
