Olleros-Chavin Trek - Hiking - Peru

This visually astounding and physically accessible trek starts from Olleros, a small village located a few kilometers south of Huaraz. The three-day hike to the spectacular fortress temple of Chavín de Huántar (800 BC) follows a pre-Columbian trade route that cuts through the mountains on its way up and over Punta Yanashallash at 4,700 meters (15,420 ft). Depending on your level of fitness (or your desire to carry your own pack) you can choose to hire a donkey to carry your equipment. A number of tour agencies in Huaraz offer this trek.
