The impressive characteristic landscapes of Peru show incredible mountains and snow-covered peaks. Come and admire them on this 2-day ascent to Yanapaccha.

The Yanapaccha is a mountain located in the Cordillera Blanca, the highest tropical mountain range of the world. With 5,460 meters above sea level, it is inside the Huascarán National Park in the Ancash Region. Apart from being a great place for mountaineering activities due to its elevated mountains, this park contains a huge variety of flora and wildlife, such as bears and condors.  

The ascent to the mountain is a bit technical and perfect for acclimatization. As it is part of the Llanganuco Valley, a tremendous gorge surrounded by the highest summits, you will be able to delight yourself with the most wonderful views of the area. Also, during this ascent, you will experience an elevation gain of 550 meters.

This is a 2-day trip and we’ll meet in Huaraz. From there we will drive during 4 hours to Yungay and then to the Llanganuco Valley. After 2 to 3 hours, we’ll reach the Moraine Camp (4,900 meters) where we’ll spend the night. On the second day of the trip, you’ll reach the summit after an ascent of 7 to 9 hours and we’ll return to Huaraz by car.

If you want to join me on this ascent, consider that a good level of fitness and previous mountaineering experience are mandatory.
