I am planning a few trips in the central Andes region in the near future. Looking for 3-10 day treks that won't be crowded. Nothing ridiculously intense or freezing cold, but challenging enough. Also interested in the culture of the area, specifically the Q'ero peoples.
I have the old LP book "Trekking the Central Andes" that is a good start.
Does anyone have experience in this region that could give me some guidance?
