Our Lakes, Cirques and Towers llama trek travels through one of the most stunning parts of the Wind River Range. The regions we hike through are characterized by one fantastically picturesque valley after another. Since the last ice age, the glacial activity left these cirques ringed by massive granite walls and towers.
We approach the Continental Divide from the west, passing serene mountain lakes and rivers, and many towering peaks, enroute. On Day 3 we hike to Texas Pass (11,450 feet on the Divide) for one of the best vantage points from which to really see the impressive nature of the Cirque of the Towers, one of the most famous spots in The Winds. We’ll be able to see all the major peaks and some of the glaciers, as well as the mountain lakes that occupy the bottom of the cirque.
We then continue on through more breathtaking country, paralleling the Continental Divide the whole way. On Day 5 we have the potential for an exciting summit attempt on Pyramid Peak (12,030 feet), the views from which are indescribeable.
The Wildland Trekking Company operates under a permit issued by the Bridger-Teton National Forest, and is an equal opportunity employer.
