Description

Positioned between two great mountains: Ranrapalca (6,112m) and Palcaraju (6,274m), the Nevado Ishinca (5,550m), while the smaller of its neighbours, is nonetheless an amazing peak. And, in just 3 days, you will get to climb your way to the top of the mountain’s amazing summit.

Located in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, the Nevado Ishinca is a great mountain to climb for those who wish to take on the much larger peaks in the range, but want to get properly acclimatized and get some important experience in the area first.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will go to either Pashpa or Collon (3,600m). After that, we will go to the base camp of the Nevado Ishinca (4,350m), where we will spend the night. On the following day, we will climb to the summit of the mountain. After you’ve soaked in some tremendous views, we will then head back to the base camp for the night. On the third and final day of the trip, we will leave the base camp and go back to Pashpa before returning to Huaraz.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. Prior mountaineering experience is recommended as well.
