Alpamayo Circuit - Peru

The Alpamayo Circuit is a 6-10 day trek around the iconic Alpamayo mountain range in the Peruvian Andes. It also coincides with the popular Santa Cruz trek so in terms of company on the trail you get feast and famine. Most trekkers hire guides, donkeys and cooks but its perfectly possible to do it unsupported as Mark Richardson did, though this means carrying up to 10 days food. Read how mark got on here.
