The Mummy Mountain Llama Trek is a challenging Colorado hike utilizing pack llamas to move all the heavy camping equipment in and out of the backcountry. This is a stunning itinerary that stages a backcountry camp in the same location for 3 nights, to give us 2 full days of trekking in to the high country from camp. The Mummy Range is a more secluded area of this iconic national park, so you can expect to see fewer people in exchange for your efforts. This trip is all about getting away from the crowds in to some brilliant backcountry, getting big mountain views, and attempting a peak summit of Mummy Mountain (13,425 ft)!
This trip is operated by Wildland Llamas, an authorized backpacking and llama outfitter in Rocky Mountain National Park.
