Highlights

 
     

    The Cordillera Blanca in Peru is a stunning Andean region well worth exploring. Mountaineers are drawn to its beautiful mountains and culture every year. Of course, climbing these mountains is no easy task. Consequently, travelling with a seasoned guide that can help you both with the trekking and logistics is essential. On this 3-Peak expedition in the Cordillera Blanca I will show you to the summits of the Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju peaks!

    We will meet in Huaraz on the first day. From there, we will drive to Pashpa or Collon to begin our trek to our base camp. Then, on the following days we will be coming back and forth to the base camp as we explore the summit of each mountain. Urus will be our first summit. As the easiest of the three, it will give us a chance to warm up, but will still be a nice challenge. The following will be Ishinca, another nice challenge that will help us prepare for our last climb. Finally, we will climb to the summit of Tocllaraju at an altitude of 6034 m.! We will have porters and a chef with us to help us on the way of this unforgettable experience!

    Some of the terrains we will cover include steep ridges, glaciers, and valleys. Of course, because we will be tackling long trekking days you will require a good fitness level. Previous mountaineering experience is also preferable. I will at all times be there to help and assist you!

    Are you ready for an exhilarating 3-peak climb in the Andes? Then book your place now and join me on this 3-peak expedition in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru!
