Description

Cordillera Blanca is a renowned mountain range in the Peruvian Andes, famous for its spectacular array of high altitude hiking. It is based in Huascarán National Park and contains Peru’s highest peak, Herado Huascarán Sur (6768m), the peak I am super excited to help you summit.

From this elevation, the views are indescribable and it gives you panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys. There are endless flat valleys to enjoy along with hot springs and glacial lakes.

With its location just 20 km away from airport town Huaraz it is very accessible for keen hikers. Cordillera Blanca is vast at 200km long and has 17 peaks exceeding 6000m. I know these mountains well and take great pleasure in guiding hikers through its amazing landscapes. The region is barely populated and one can experience truly wild and unspoilt landscapes.

Trekking at this altitude requires a certain level of fitness, you will have time to acclimitise to the conditions however this trip is not for beginner hikers. To arrive in Huaraz you will take a 50 minute flight from Lima.

I’m ready and waiting for your company on this trip of a lifetime so sign up now and I look forward to sharing this experience with you.

If this trip excites you then join me on another 7 day trek in the nearby Cordillera HuayHuash. Or if you are looking for something longer then consider this 13-day trek from Santa Cruz to Ulta through some of Peru’s most beautiful and dramatic scenery.

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú

I started working on the mountains when I was still a college student, working in climbing and trekking tours.

This early passion quickly developed into a profession, for climbing and trekking in the Andes. I learned with experienced German, Canadian and Swiss guides, among others.

I like to share my experience and expertise acquired in expeditions around the world, and show visitors the beauty of the Peruvian Andes in the Cordillera Blanca, and all along my country.

I am a certified IFMGA-UIAGM mountain guide and member of the Association of Mountain Guides of Peru (AGMP).

I speak Spanish, English and Quechua.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
