I am happy to organize this 4-day ascent up to the summit of the Nevado Pisco, at 5972 meters of altitude.

The Nevado Pisco or the Mataraju mountain is a peak of the Cordillera Blanca. It lies in the Yungay province and is part of the Peruvian Andes.

The first climbers to reach that peak were George Kogan and Nicole Leininger. When they summited it they celebrated with Pisco, the national drink of Perú. That is why the Mataraju mountain is known today as the Nevado Pisco.

The Pisco mountain is an ideal summit for beginners as well as for experts. Anyway, I always recommend a prior acclimatization through the Santa Cruz and Llanganuco trek. The Ausangate trail is another good option.

Once you are at the top of the mountain you’ll enjoy an unforgettable 360º panoramic view of the famous group of summits. All of them are more of 6000 meters high!

If you want more details about this program, feel free to contact me and ask me all your doubts. It will be my pleasure to help you conquer the Nevado Pisco summit!
