Therewith we cross the 5000m barrier for the first time.
Eventually it will be also possible to include another hike to another small 5000er.

But in every case, the panorama over the Cordillera Huayhuash is just breathtaking.

We follow the path into the close valleys where there are a lot of possibilities for camping. Until here it will take us 7-8 hours.

It should lay a bit of snow on this height of 5350 meters, nevertheless the ascend can be managed without difficulties.

Especially Jirishanca and Yerupaja play to the gallery beautifully.
For those who want to take it easy today, they can take the easier way over the 4800 meters high paso Yaucha, beautiful views included.

In every case a few meters descent are waiting for us, as today’s destinations the Laguna Jahuacocha at a height of 4066 meters.

Here at the border of the huge Yerupaja we will build up our tents, the views are always breathtaking. The route will take about 8 - 10 hours activity.
