Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to reach the summits of Vallunaraju and Pisco and enjoy their most amazing ski descents. They are two beautiful peaks of the Peruvian Andes, in Cordillera Blanca.

    Vallunaraju and Pisco are two very popular mountains from the area. Vallunaraju (5,686 meters) is located in the Huaraz province and Pisco (5,752 meters) in Yungay, Ancash region.

    The Vallunaraju summit is open to every type of skier. Its access is not difficult and it is perfect for acclimatization and beginners. In addition, it is a very good spot to practice different mountain activities such as ice climbing. As for Pisco, its ascent is not difficult either. This peak is known as the balcony of the Cordillera Blanca since you can enjoy the most astonishing panoramic views from its summit.

    Although these are not challenging ascents, it is important to have a good physical condition to join this trip.

    Discover the Vallunaraju and Pisco mountains and make turns on their great slopes. Send your request and book this trip. I will be glad to guide you there.

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú, based in Huaraz, Cordillera Blanca.

    I like mountaineering and skiing. I recently completed the ski certification in Argentina, so I'm one of the few fully IFMGA certified guides in Peru. I've also guided in Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina and the Alps.

    Some of my favourite trips are climbing in the Dolomites, Fitz Roy in El Chalten, and mountain biking across Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
