Ascent to Huascaran South Face in 6 days

Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.

Nevado Huascaran 6-Day Guided Ascent

Octavio wss injured and we ended up with Hector instead. He is new, but is very friendly and hard working. I would acclimatize more than the stated 3 days at one of the lagoons if you want to increase your chance at success. Communication was lacking a little prior to the trip with no contact until the day before the trip. Overall the crew was great and went above and beyond my expectations.

Ascent to Mount Chopicalqui, Huaraz

Disappointed with the whole experience. Didn't climb with Juventino, never met him. Got a different guide. Booked Pisco and Chopicalcui as separate climbs with one day off in between to rest. Agency combined the climbs. They told me to of go from Pisco BC directly to Chopicalcui moraine camp. Got a different guide who didn't tell me that we'll get snowed in at moraine camp. Only found out about the snow once we reached Chopicalcui moraine camp. Spent the night there, next day had to go down. Disappointed rebooked my flight and left Peru. Waste of my time and money.

Climbing Nevado Pisco 5752m, Huaraz

The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.

Climbing Nevado Vallunaraju in Perú

From the very first emails communication which was dealt with efficiently and provide all the required information and other options for myself to consider. When I arrived the communication was excellent and very well organised. When I return later this year I will without doubt be using Eric and the team. When we arrive at the start point to getting back the local guide was excellent. I have nothing but praise for the set up.

Santa Cruz Trek and Ascent to Pisco

We had 10 days in the Cordillera Blanca and Octavio helped us plan a great trip. We did Laguna 69 day trip, Santa Cruz trek, climbing in Hatunmachay, ice climbing and trekking on Mount Pisco. The trip was very well organised and equipment provided was of high quality. Octavio is an experienced mountain guide and climber so we always felt safe throughout the trip. We had a great chef with us when camping and always enjoyed the food he prepared. Also enjoyed chatting to Octavio in the evenings and hearing his great stories!

Nevado Pisco 3-day climbing expedition

Where to start, the personal touch, the enjoyment, the focus on the client and safety. A truly enjoyable experience with both brothers. The only bad thing I would say is that the experiences have to come to an end. They have made our honeymoon truly memorable and I wouldn’t change a moment. I would highly recommend using andeanpeaks.com if you want a safe and enjoyable experience with well trained, likeable, friendly, personal and experienced guides. I cannot praise enough. Thank you so so much!!

Santa Cruz Trek and Ascent to Pisco

We had 10 days in Andes (Huaraz as base) and wanted to get a mix of trekking, rock climbing and mountaineering. Contacted Andean Peaks who helped me organize the whole trip. Octavio, who was our main guide and one of the owners of the company was super helpful and quick to respond on both emails and Whatsapp. Octavio is a qualified professional mountain guide. Apart from this, he's also a super friendly guy an a good climber. Bonus points for always being punctual, having great equipment/tents etc, good chef (cooked pizza for us at 4600m!). Highly recommend. Activites: 1 day Laguna 69, 3 day Santa Cruz Trek, 2 days rock climbing, 1 day Ice wall climbing and 3 day Pisco mountain.

Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju climbing expedition

Octavio was very responsive with communication considering he's in the mountains most of the time. Octavio is an experienced guide and very accommodating with teaching new skills and techniques. The trip was well organized with all aspects accounted for making the trips enjoyable. During the climbs I felt I was in good hands all the time. The food was certainly a highlight of the trip, 5 star restaurant quality like and better. Will certainly be returning to climb with Andeanpeaks in the near future. Thanks to Octavio and the team!

Nevado Ishinca 3-day guided ascent, Cordillera Blanca

Octavio and his brother Eloy (and the wider team) provide an excellent service. They are certified mountain guides with lot of experience and customize the routes to the experience of the individual. I did Ishinca summit with them and the guide Malu was very professional and patient with me. I would always go again with them! Thx

Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju climbing expedition

This guys are great. They are certified mountain guides. The food in the camp was better than the restaurants in Huaraz. You feel safe in their hands all the way to the summit. We climbed 3 mountains in the same tour Ishinca, urus and Tocllaraju. Many thanks to the team they make of the tour a fun place during the climb and in base camp. Totally recommendable

Chopicalqui (6350 m) 4-day climb with a guide

Our guide, Quique. was top notch. I have used guides all over the world and he stands out in his knowledge, professionalism and kindness. I hope to try and use him in the future. In the mountains, one must adjust to changing conditions and he did so quickly and competently. Besides being one of the nicest people I have ever met, his skills in the mountains cannot be doubted.

I had an excellent time with Octavio and the whole team at the mountaineering course on yanapaccha mountain in huascaran national park. The preparation was perfect for the final summit day and my first 5000m peak! Octavia and his team always took care of me and were the perfect partners for this incredible experience! Thank you so much!

Santa Cruz Trek and Ascent to Pisco

Leaving Huaraz after an amazing trek with Eloy from Andean Peaks. Me and my boyfriend did a Santa Cruz trek (you can opt for a private or group tour), 4 days, 3 nights. All the service was just perfect - food (we thought we will survive on snacks but actually received proper meals and nice company during dinners), support during the actual trek, local stories, luggage transfer etc. The whole team took care of us very nicely, not forgetting about allowing us also to have a nice local experience! The landscape itself is beautiful! Highly recommended! Besides the trek itself, also the communication prior to that was smooth and re-assuring. Thanks Octavio & Eloy!

Climbing Nevado Vallunaraju in Perú

The legend Juventino. My brother and I travelled to Huaraz to climb the Vallunaraju summit. Our guide Juventino has been the best guide I've had over the past years and I have made a lot of hikes and climbing over the world. He is a very talented and experienced guide, he took care of us very much and made sure safety is first. We also had an amazing experience with the food, they cooked delicious meals. They also have top brand quality equipment that made us feel really safe, we had the lucky experience of having a horrible storm at the base camp and I believe that the north face summit series tent they provided saved us!!!! Overall, best guide I have ever had, made us feel very confortable and happy. If you want a guide to feel safe and have the best experience possible go with the legend Juventino!!!


 

There are many reasons for choosing Mountain Climbing in Peru

Peru is world-renowned for its beautiful scenery and rightfully so. Any mountain climbing experience yields incredible views of massive glacier-capped peaks, high plains, tropical rainforest and so much more. Heading up into the mountains is a great way to see this beautiful place from above and bask in the natural glory.

 

Good to know:

Country Code:

+51

Language:

Spanish

Currency:

Sol (PEN)

Best time to visit:

May to September

What’s the weather like?

Due to its proximity to the equator, Peru has a dry and wet season. The dry season is the best time to climb because little rain falls and the days are mostly clear. Average daily temperatures at this time of year are around 20 ºC and decrease as you gain in altitude

How to get there:

Any trip to Peru begins with a light into the international airport in Lima (LIM). Many guides will opt to meet you here before providing transport to the start of the trip. Otherwise, you will likely fly to the local airport in Huaraz (ATA) or another city before meeting the guide and heading to the start of the trip

More info about Mountain Climbing in Peru:

Situated on the western coast of South America, Peru is home to the Andes Mountains and is an incredible mountain climbing destination. At 6,768 meters in elevation, Huascaran is the country’s highest peak and an excellent challenge for intermediate and advanced moutnaineers However, there are plenty of other options outside of this peak. Many mountain climbers like to take a few days and climb several different peaks. Climbing Nevados Maparaju, Huapi and Ishinca is among the most popular of these multi-peak climbs. Outside of the aforementioned areas, Cusco is another popular spot for mountain climbing expeditions. Pachatusan (4,842 meters), Salcantay (6,271 meters) and Sahuasiray (5,818 meters) are all popular climbing destinations
