Type of Trip
- Climb one of the most popular mountains in Cordillera Blanca.
- Take part in a demanding expedition in the Peruvian Andes.
Located in the Peruvian region of Ancash, the Tocllaraju (6,034 meters) is one of the highest and most popular mountains of the Cordillera Blanca. I invite you to come with me on this technical climb and discover this astonishing pyramid-shaped summit.
The starting point of our trip will be the city of Huaraz. From there, we’ll drive to Pashpa. This little village will be the trailhead of our ascent. We’ll start a 4 to 5 hour hike to the Base Camp (4,350 meters) going through the Ishinca Valley. On the following day, we’ll go to the Moraine Camp (4,950 meters) or the High Camp (5,100 meters). The ascent will also take us approximately 4 or 5 hours. On day 3, we’ll reach the summit after a 15 to 16 hour hike. Finally, during the last day of the trip, we’ll return to Pashpa and drive to Huaraz.
Although it is not an easy ascent, the Tocllaraju is the least difficult mountain from the 6000 peaks of the range. I strongly recommend you to have a good level of fitness and prior mountaineering experience to join this climb.
So send your request now and start planning the ascent to this incredible peak. I will be happy to share this wonderful climbing experience with you!
I can also lead you on an expedition to Huascaran in Peru. Check it out!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
