Ascend the famous Nevado Chopicalqui in 4 days with one of the certified guides from our staff. A challenging summit for those with some prior experience.
Jun, Jul, Aug
The Chopicalqui is the third highest peak of the Huascaran Massif. Thanks to its 6354 meters of altitude, you'll witness the most breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca from the summit.
I would like to invite you climb this summit via the classic southwest ridge in 4 days. It involves some technical sections of ice climbing in which you will use ice axes. That is why you will need strong alpine skills as well as a good safety technique to manage crampons and rope on ice walls.
Once we reach to the high camp at 5400 meters you'll understand why the Chopicalqui is one of the favorite mountains for many climbers. And from its summit we can admire many impressive mountains. The Chacraraju, Huandoy, Huascaran and Artesonraju are some of them.
So, what are you waiting for? Contact me now if you want to go for this challenging peak of the Cordillera Blanca!
After breakfast we will prepare our mountaineering equipment in Huaraz. From there a transfer will take us to the Qubrada Llanganuco and then we’ll hike to the Chopicalqui Base Camp (4350 m). We’ll then continue the ascent to the Chopicalqui Moraine Camp (4900 m) where we’ll spend the first night (-/L/D).
Today, we will climb over the rocky moraine to the glacier. Then, over the different slopes of the glacier, we will cross some crevasses until we reach the High Camp (5-6 hours of hike) (B/L/D).
Climbing to the summit. There are many crevasses to cross and sections of technical walls to climb. On the final section we will have 8-10 meters of 75º -80º slopes. Descent to the High Camp or Moraine Camp and continue to the Base Camp. The round trip will take 10-13 hours (B/L/D).
We will leave early. We will walk down from the Moraine Camp or Base Camp to the highway, where we will find our private bus. Lodging at the hotel in Huaraz (B/L/-). End of the program.

Peru Expeditions is a Guide Agency and Tour Operator based in Huaraz, Peru.
It's a family-owned travel agency, which was founded more than 35 years ago, and is now managed by IFMGA-guide Juventino and his son, Eric.
We organize trekkings and mountain expeditions in Cordillera Blanca, and all around Peru.
Disappointed with the whole experience. Didn't climb with Juventino, never met him. Got a different guide. Booked Pisco and Chopicalcui as separate climbs with one day off in between to rest. Agency combined the climbs. They told me to of go from Pisco BC directly to Chopicalcui moraine camp. Got a different guide who didn't tell me that we'll get snowed in at moraine camp. Only found out about the snow once we reached Chopicalcui moraine camp. Spent the night there, next day had to go down. Disappointed rebooked my flight and left Peru. Waste of my time and money.
