Climate
: In the Cordillera Huayhuash heavy rains are tio be expected from December to March and a markedly dry season from May to October, where sunny days post temperatures of 25°C and freezing nights.

Access: The mountains are generally reached from the town of Chiquián (360 km northeast Lima), an ideal place to stock up on provisions.

Services: Climbers heading to the Cordillera Huayhuash can hire guides and porters in the nearby town of Llamac, Pocpa and Pacllon. Expeditions can also be organized from the nearby city of Huaraz.

"The most splendid of Peru's mountain ranges" is a common remark made by climbers about the Cordillera Huayhuash. The first summit in the range is Mt.  Siulá Grande, first climbed by an Austrian expedition in 1936. Its highest mountain, Yerupajá, was first climbed in 1950 by a team from Harvard University.

The Cordillera Huayhuash includes a dozen peaks which are particularly difficult to climb due to frequent snow and ice avalanches. Some of the best-known glaciers include Yerupajá (6,634 meters), Yerupajá Chico (6,121 meters), Jirishanca (6,094 meters), Siulá Grande (6,344 meters), Rondoy (5,879 meters), Ninashanca (5,807 meters), and Rasac (6,017 meters).

The mountains are usually approached from the town of Chiquián (360 km northeast of Lima), which is also an ideal place for getting supplies. Porters and guides can be hired in the nearby towns of Llamac, Pocpa and Pacllón. Expeditions are also organized in nearby Huaraz.
