I will be backpacking the Cordillera Huayhuash circuit in September self-sufficiently as light as possible. Which stove would you recommend either an MSR whisperlite to use petrol or a screw-on gas canister stove? Does the petrol in Peru/Huaraz work well with multi-fuel stoves and are screw-on gas canisters readily available in Huaraz? The highest camps are 4500m so there will be a temperature problem with the gas canisters. How much petrol would you recommend for a 14 day trek? I currently only have 1.3Litre capacity so I might need to get some extra bottles. If anyone is going to be Huaraz at the beginning of September and wants to join me?
