Description

Are you looking for a relatively easy climb in the beautiful Cordillera Blanca of Peru? Do you want to properly acclimatize on a gorgeous peak in order to tackle one of the larger and more challenging peaks in the range? Then you’ll love this 3-day climbing adventure that will take you to the summit of Urus Central (5,495m).

Located in the Ishinca Valley, the Urus Peak is full of wonderful views. And, the snowy surface makes the climbing experience something truly magical, particularly from the summit.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will go to Pashpa and then on to the Ishinca Base Camp (4,350m). We will spend the next two nights at the camp, where you can explore and enjoy some great views, both day and night. On the second day of the trip, we will climb up to the summit of Urus before returning to the base camp. Some of the peaks you’ll be able to see from the summit include Palcaraju, Tocllaraju, Copa, Akilpo and more. On the final day of the trip, we will return to Pashpa before heading back to Huaraz.

While Urus is not a technically challenging mountain, it is recommended that you still have some prior climbing experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

If you are looking for a 5,000 plus meter peak in the Cordillera Blanca to climb, a mountain that will prepare you for other, bigger peaks in the area, this is the trip for you. To join us, please send a request. We look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

We also offer a 2-day climb of Vallunaraju, which you can enjoy here.

Everything was very organised ! I’ve enjoyed it a lot and might do some other excursion again.
