More Info

The Cordillera Blanca is considered “the Peruvian capital of mountaineering”. It is located on the eastern side of the Santa River Valley, in Callejón de Huaylas. It has the greatest amount of snow-capped peaks, among which Huascarán (6768 m), Huandoy and its three summits over 6000 meters, Chopicalqui (6354 m), Chacraraju (6 112 m), Alpamayo (5947 m) and Copa (6118 m) stand out.

The glacial peaks offer good challenges to the most experienced climbers, but there are also easier itineraries that demand few hours and gentle routes.
