Description

Join us to climb 3 iconic peaks in the Cordillera Blanca- Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju in Peru!

Located just outside of Huaraz, the Ishinca Valley is a popular climbing destination for many climbers given all the amazing peaks which lie here.

The trek offers a variety of climbs as we’ll be ascending not one but three peaks on our journey- Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju.

This is an easy to moderate grade trek and is ideal for beginners who are looking for some high altitude experience. The approach is short and thus offers enough time to acclimatize and learn some basic snow and ice climbing skills.

Before beginning the trek, we’ll pick you up from Lima and transfer you to your hotel in Huaraz. You’ll spend the following day making an acclimatizing day tour to Churup Lake (4,450m).

The trek will officially begin in Huaraz and the first destination will be Ishinca Base Camp 4,300m. From there, you’ll get to Urus Summit (5,490m), to see some amazing vistas of neighboring peaks.

The next couple of days will lead to the high peaks of Ishinca (5,560m) and Tocllaraju (6,030m). Scaling on ice and snow and tackling moraine, you’ll gradually reach these two peaks, having learned basic climbing techniques. We have also included a rest day between these two hikes so that you recharge well and approach the peaks with full vigor.

After achieving the majestic feat of scaling 3 peaks in such a short time frame, we’ll return to  Huaraz via Cochapampa to end the incredible trip.

We can also organize a customized trip based on your preference and skill level. So, you don’t have to worry about anything!
