Cordillera Blanca Traverse (CBT) Gear List | Peru, 2014

I hiked the CBT in August/September, which is “dry” season in the Central Andes of South America.

It is also winter, however, due to the fact that the Cordillera Blanca is situated so close to the equator, temperature fluctuations are relatively minor throughout the year.

Temperatures at around 4000 metres (13,123 ft), typically ranged between 20 ºC and -10ºC (dropping further at higher altitudes).

Despite the fact that it is technically considered to be dry season, in recent decades heavy rains, snowfalls and high winds are becoming increasingly common in the Cordillera Blanca between May and September.
