Hatun  Machay Rock forest  -  Aclimatization Hike or Rock Climbing

Hatun Machay is a stone forest located at 4200m further south, about 70km from Huaraz on the road to Lima and in the vicinity of the village of Pampas Chico, Hatun Machay is a rock-climber’s paradise. Developed dozens of climbing routes throughout this ‘rock forest’ nestled high in the Cordillera Negra. The rock here is granite are eroded by water, wind and glaciers. It is very similar to the one found in Huayllay to have been eroded in the same way. You can find some volcanic rock but in smaller proportions.

Ideal place for beginning rock-climbing instruction, as well as hard-core ascents. If that weren’t enough, two treks around the area take you past archaeological remains of rock carvings and a view of the Pacific Ocean (on a clear day), and make for great alternative  half-day acclimatization hikes enjoying a magnificent view  of south part of the Cordillera Blanca and part of the Cordillera Huayhuash.

After breakfast our Inkaland Treks guide and private transportation  will pick you at your hotel then drive south from Huaraz passing  through traditional Andean  towns like Recuay,Titcapampa and Catac on the main road then on  a dirt road in the vicinity of the village of Pampas Chico, as you get  high on drive there is an impressive view of the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhash mountain range comes into view.Then we walk around Hatun Machay area as acclimatization hike or  practice climbing rock depends of your choose.

*If your chose is rock climbing, we organize a complete climbing equipment and an expertise rock climbing guide.
