Huascaran

Romer, a local certified mountain guide, wants to take you to the summit of the highest mountain in Perú: join him for an incredible 6-day mountaineering tour in Huascarán!

Cordillera Blanca

6 Days

Jun - Aug

High

Intermediate


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!

Mountain Leader

I like mountains and I love nature, I practice cycling and hiking, I know very well the hiking trails of Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash.
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).

Amazing trek with an amazing company. Our guide, David, was incredible and the assistants Teo and Alejandro were always incredibly positive. I would recommend this trek to anyone and it was the best cost per person I saw out of any company, by a mile.

Como clientes siempre deseamos que todo este de lo mejor, la estrategia y planificación de un viaje de montaña no es nada fácil y las condiciones y condicionantes son variadas y muchas!! Me encantan los treks de montaña, esta fue la primera vez en la cordillera Andina Peruana Huayhuash y todo salió fenomenal!! 100 pts. Nuestro guía de campo Marcos y nuestro arriero Yosimel estuvieron siempre muy atentos y serviciales; todos los insumos fueron bien planificados. Perú es un gran destino, seguro que volveremos!

Romer was amazing. He was very responsive and helpful. He always replied within a few hours (at the most), and was very accommodating when we needed to change things. He even went and paid a deposit at a local hotel to hold our reservation for us. I can't say enough good about Romer. The itinerary of the trip was a bit difficult. It started at a camp that was 13,700 above sea level, and the first day of trekking was 8 hours of hard terrain. Other treks I've done start lower and have a pace of 5-6 hours per day. Also, our guide Fredy was a bit inexperienced. He was a very kind person, but didn't provide much service to our small team.
