    FAQ group departures:

    What days can start the group departures
    Departures can be on the day of your choice.

    Can we book on-site?
    The quality of the tours sold in Huaraz (99%) are not at the level of our minimum requierements (general quality, proper payment of staff, sudden extra costs, unwanted surprises, ...). In order to organize a trek properly, get one of the better guides etc. it is very much recommendable to book well in advance. Needless to say that left-over guides, cooks,… are not usually the best. For these reasons, to start a new group departure, you have to book at least 4 weeks in advance in order to give us a chance to look for more participants over the internet.

    Hotels, Bus before/after trek?
    We can also organize transfers, hotels in Huaraz or other cities, packages in the rest of the country etc. If you would prefer more services, from the airport in Lima for example or a complete Peru travel package, please let us know.

    How many days acclimatization do we need before starting the trek?
    We recommend at least 2 full days (3 nights) on altitude before starting the trek. If you have been on altitude in the South of the country before (Colca Canyon, Puno, Cusco – all on altitude) or in Huaraz you shouldn´t consider this anymore and might as well go to the trek immediately after arrival to Huaraz.

    Can you accommodate food sensitivities?
    Our cooks are used to dealing with vegetarians and vegans.

    What is the price of the optional climb of Diablo Mudo (5.350 m)?
    USD 120 per person, minimum 2 participants. Clients who want to include Diablo Mudo should tell us at least the day before departure to Huayhuash and pay the appropriate amount. We need to take the climbing equipment on the whole trek. After acclimatization most clients have a clear idea of how strong they are at altitude. If for some reason you do not climb Diablo Mudo, there will be no refund.
    Wenn some clients go to Diablo Mudo (climbers) and others not (hikers), the hikers follow the normal route together with the cook/donkey driver while the climbers go to Diablo Mudo. Everybody meets at the following camp site (Jahuacocha).
    Previous experience being roped on, walking with crampons and abseiling are an advantage but for adventurous clients not necessesarily required.
