The Road Less Travelled: My Journeys in the Andes


Course description

While most associate the Peruvian Andes with Machu Picchu, some of the world’s best and most remote trekking occurs a bit further north in the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash. The Cordillera Huayhuash is the home of Siula Grande, one of the hardest mountains to climb in the world and the setting for the story Touching the Void. In this talk, Dr. Krigolson will take you on a journey through his recent trekking and climbing experiences in the Peruvian Andes. This is a voyage of summits, high mountain passes and some of the best back country trekking in the world as ranked by National Geographic magazine. Dr. Krigolson will also touch on his experiences in Lima, a city with a population that equals one third of Canada and give you a quick glimpse of Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail.
