Gustavo is the friendliest, most easygoing hostel owner we have encountered in Peru. He made us feel at home here right away. Our three kids enjoyed the climbing wall especially. The vibe is very laid back and low key.

The owner Gustavo is a great guy willing to share advice about the surroundings and his secret pizza sauce receipt. There a climbing wall out back and plenty of the people staying here love to climb so if your traveling alone theres no problem making friends to do some bouldering in the area or sharing a ride out to Hatunmachay for some sport climbing. Be aware of your food around Harriet he loves to eat :)

We arrived in Huaraz Monday morning, too early. The bus pulled in at 4:30 am and a taxi driver grabbed us, knew how to get us to the hostel where we had reserved rooms, Monkeywasi, and was as helpful and friendly as can be, besides the fact that he charged us double the going rate for the short ride from the terminal to the hostel. I …

... and calm, shielded by the monster mountains. We used the last of our water to make rice and pesto as we contemplated that we would essentially be sleeping on a cliff edge. I can't wait until next time I watch a paramount film... "Slept on that we did". At 6am I peered out of the tent, icicles had formed, we were warm enough inside though and our tents had a slid down the slope only a fraction. It turned out we were so close to the top, which didn't disappoint. We ...

All week I've been building up to the Laguna 69 hike of 5 hours, 3 up and 2 down – it is not guided, they just give you the directions and off you go – if you want guided, that’s an extra 40 soles minimum!

Was told collection from my hostal would be between 5.50 and 6.10 but they were early so wasn’t impressed – an early start is all very well if they give you the correct info. After the 18 seater was full headed North for ...

... girl, Tena, kept us entertained with her "gangsta" style English from watching too much of The Wire :)

Anyway, the first day was fairly easy, followed by an incomparably long second day, 10 hours walking, which included hiking up to a mountain pass at 4800m in some rain /sleet / hailstones / snow. Luckily the weather cleared when we were nearing the top so we got a glimpse of the amazing views while standing on ...

... was itching to get in some more trekking. I had been hearing the stories of fellow travelers spending four days in the rain, and missed vistas-after a long climb-due to a misty veil blocking their view. But my time in the Peruvian Andes was coming to a close, and I decided to go for it. And was so glad that I did. The Santa Cruz Trek is one of the most popular treks in the Cordillera Blanca range-especially if you are short on time. It takes you into the ...
