Follow me on this 4-day ascent and visit the amazing Cordillera Blanca to get to the top of the beautiful Artesonraju peak.

With 6,025 meters and its singular pyramid-shaped summit, the Artesonraju mountain is located in the Paron Valley and it is a very well know ascent for climbers around the world.

The meeting point of our trip will be the city of Huaraz. As for the itinerary, on day 1 we’ll drive to the Paron Lake, the largest lake of the range. Then, we’ll hike up during 3 to 4 hours to the Base Camp (4,350 meters). On day 2, we’ll take a 4 to 5 hour hike to the High Camp (5,300 meters). The following day, we’ll reach the summit of the incredible Artesonraju. This will take us around 16 to 18 hours. As you can see, it will be an intense climb. Finally, during the last day of the trip, we’ll return to the Paron Lake, drive to Huaraz and say goodbye.

Take into account that the level of this ascent is demanding, so a very good physical condition and previous mountaineering experience are mandatory.

So if you want to hike up this incredible summit, please contact me! I will be glad to be your guide to this fantastic adventure!
