    Are you already in the Cordillera Blanca? Are you not ready to go home?
    Do you want to scale yet another peak? Then let me guide you on a 5-day trek to the summit of Artesonraju.

    At first glance, the peak of Artesonraju may look familiar to you. That’s because it inspired the world famous logo of Paramount Studios.

    While many people are too tired to move at the end of a 2-week trek through the Peruvian Andes, some still want more. And at a rapid 5-days, this trip is a perfect add-on. However, this is not an easy climb. It is strenuous. Hence, scaling the Artesonraju requires past experience. You will be screened beforehand. But the rewards will be well worth it.

    There is a reason Paramount Studios chose this mountain over any other. The peak is absolutely gorgeous. It is one of the most beautiful in all of the Andes.

    Access to Artesonraju is pretty straightforward. Thus the condensed trip time. We will depart from Huaraz to the Paron Valley. After that we will make our way to the High Camp at the Glacier nestled beneath the mountain’s southwest face. From there we will have 2 days to summit the mighty mountain’s 600 meter snow and ice covered wall, before making our way back to Huaraz on the final day.

    For the truly adventurous, join me on this amazing 5-day add-on trek up the Artesonraju because you’re already there, so why not push yourself even more? Why not test your endurance and scale one of the most majestic mountains in the world?

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    And if you’re looking for a great trip to add this one on to, you can join me on this expedition.
