Alpamayo – Quitaraju, Peru, 9 Day Guided Ascent | undefined

Join IFMGA certified mountain guide Edwin on a thrilling 9 day adventure to the summits of 2 of the Cordillera Blanca's best peaks, Alpamayo and Quitaraju.

Andes, Cordillera Blanca

9 Days

Jun - Aug




The only thing better than climbing one amazing peak in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru is climbing two! And on this glorious 9 day expedition, you will get to climb two of the best, Alpamayo (5,947m) and Quitaraju (6,036m).

Starting in the lovely city of Huaraz in the Ancash region, we will make our way through Cashapampa to Llamacorral. From there, we will venture to the Alpamayo base camp. And from there, you will be immersed in a world of great climbing.

We will ascend the mountain carefully and safely. We will stop at the high camp, before reaching the summit the following day. This will give you time to rest and recuperate, as well as give you ample opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca. And from the summit of the mountain, the views only get better, as you are able to see even more of this magnificent Andean range.

After that, we will descend to the high camp, before making our way to the summit of the second mountain on this expedition: Quitaraju. Just like Alpamayo, Quitaraju is a gorgeous peak, and from its magical summit, you will get to see several peaks rising high in the area, as well as some beautiful alpine lakes, including Ichiccocha, Jatuncocha and Quitacocha.

By the end of this amazing trip, you will have enough memories and mesmerising images in your mind to last a lifetime. So send us a request and let me guide you. The peaks await!

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
