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.




Good to Know


How to get there

From Lima you can get there by plane using the local airline with daily flights to Huaraz. Another option is by bus, with an 8-hour ride along a good paved road.

Best time to visit

Southern hemisphere's winter is the best season to visit the mountains of the Cordillera Blanca. During June, July and August the weather is more stable and the summits are in the best conditions.

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.
