Enjoy a nice 7-day ascent to the Alpamayo summit, considered "the most beautiful mountain of the world". Feel safe with the company of Marco, an IFMGA certified mountain guide from Huaraz.
The Alpamayo is a Peruvian mountain of the Andes mountain range located in the Cordillera Blanca. It reaches an altitude of 5947 meters. In addition, it was proclaimed by the Alpinismus Magazine in 1966 as “The Most Beautiful Mountain in the World”.
Its access takes place from the city of Caraz (2250 m) in the north extreme of the Callejón de Huaylas (Ancash), through a road that reaches the Cashapampa town. From here, it is a 22-km hike along the famous Santa Cruz Trek, towards Quisuarpampa (at 4000 meters). Here we must take a detour to the north. So then we’ll ascend the Quebrada Arhuaycocha and finally get to the Base Camp at 4300 meters high.
The ascent to the Alpamayo has not the difficulty that inspires the climbers. However, this 7-day expedition is worth it since its landscapes are really stunning.
I always recommend to come to the Cordillera Blanca from May to August. It is the Peruvian dry season, without rains. I can lead a group of 2 guests since it is an expedition which requires especial attention. However, if you’re a larger group an assistant will join us.
You have no excuses! It’s your opportunity to visit the most beautiful mountain of the world. Contact me and I will help you to do it!
