Description

Mount Huascaran, the highest mountain in Peru, is a top destination for mountaineering lovers. This 6-day adventure is your chance to reach its summit under expert guidance. Join me!

Located in the Cordillera Blanca, a sub-range range of the western Andes, the mountain has two distinct summits. The highest of the two is Huascarán Sur (6,768m) and will be our aim on this trip. On the way we will enjoy the gorgeous jagged peaks and untouched settings!

This 6-day ascent is for intermediate level to advanced mountaineers. There are some sections where there is danger of avalanches, as well as cracks and seracs to traverse. Additionally, you need to consider the altitude. Therefore,  you need to be physically prepared for a true alpine experience in order to join. Of course, I will be present to help and guide you all the way. 

So, if you are up for this mountaineering trip to the summit of Huascarán, please contact me. I’ll be glad to guide you through this magnificent mountain region!

I also offer a stunning adventure to Mount Pisco, another of the highlights of the Peruvian Andes. Check it out!

The passion for nature was my inspiration to study Official Tourist Guide. I am experienced in travel organisation and logistics, especially adventure travel.
At present I’m a logistics manager at a travel agency with German clients, and I also have my own agency where I take care of the organisation of the adventure trips (trekking, mountaineering, mountain bike and day hikes).
