Paso Huachococha

Huachococha Pass

Paso Huachococha is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.366m (14,324ft) above the sea level, located in the region Ancash, in central Peru.

The road to the summit, located within the Cordillera Blanca, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The pass links San Luis and Cajay. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Very difficult dirt road passing through a fantastic scenery. Breathtaking views of giant glaciers. At the summit there’s a lagoon and a mountain refuge. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions.
