Birds of the Cordillera Blanca

Huascaran National Park encompases most of the Cordillera Blanca (the world's highest tropical mountain range) and affords a measure of protection to some of Peru's best remaining and highly endangered polylepis (queñual) forests. These trees are home to several Peruvian endemic birds and some other rare species.


We are currently based in Huaraz and will soon be available for birdwatching day trips in the quebradas of the Cordillera Blanca. If you are going to be in the region and would like us to take you out contact us at Further details will be available on the website in the near future.

Bird Treks

In the coming months our plan is to design some more adventurous multi-day bird treks where we will use pack animals to go birding in a roadless setting.
