The best season for trekking in the Cordillera Raura Cordillera Huayhuash Peru is during the Andean Winter (late April to September). The weather in the Cordillera Raura is among the best found in the entire Andean Range.MAYJUNEJULYAUGUSTSEPTEMBER
Early season conditions will include seasonal snow cover on the glaciers, while later in the season conditions become icy and the wind increases. We’ve found the period of May-August the best. Although storms can occur, long periods of stable, dry weather are prevalent. However, like all big mountains such as Yerupaja , Siula Grande, the peaks of the Cordillera Huayhuash and Raura generate and attract their own weather making it impossible to predict.
