Trip Info

Our Santa Cruz to Llanganuco trek is one of the most popular and famous circuits in the Cordillera Blanca. Heading up the spectacular Quebrada Santa Cruz Valley, crosses the Punta Union Pass at 4750m, below stunning peaks of the Cordillera Blanca and skirting turquoise glacial lakes. The valleys are great places to observe native Andean alpine flora, especially the many wildflowers that bloom during the trekking season, including buttercups, ranunculus, lupines and several species of orchids. Many encrustations of deep-red bromeliads can be seen along the track, sprouting from boulders and on rock faces. Fauna includes few alpacas and llamas, mountain caracaras, falcons, Andean geese and ducks, hawks, hummingbirds, American kestrels, puna ibis, Andean swifts, Andean foxes and mountain vizcachas.
