4 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS OF UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURES IN THE WHITE CORDILLERA
The Classic Trek Santa Cruz is the classic and the most popular road of the White Cordillera. This trek is characterised by four (4) days of walking through one of the most spectacular zones of the White Cordillera. You will pass through canyons and their turquoise lagoons, forests, high Andean meadows and mountains of more than 6,000 meters high.
You will also cross mountain pass such as Punta Union, at 4,750 meters, and Portachuelo de Llanganuco, at 4,765 meters. From these places, you could appreciate one of the most impressive views of the White Cordillera’s mountains.
Also, this road allows a progressive ascension which favours a better altitude acclimation.
The beginning of the trek is characterised by a lent and progressive climb, while following the Santa Cruz’s stream. You will after cross the mountain pass of Punta Union, at 4,750 meters high, and walk down through the Huaripampa’s ravine until Vaqueria.
From this place, our transportation will bring us to Portachuelo de Llanganuco, at 4,765 meters high. We will after walk down while following the Portachuelo watercourse to visit the lagoons of Llanganuco: Chinancocha and Orconcocha. Finally, we will come back to the city of Huaraz.
