Description

Welcome to an unforgettable expedition in the Cordillera Vilcanota. During 10 days, I will help you climb the Campa and Ausangate. It is a very interesting program since you will conquer 2 summits in the same trip.

The Ausangate (6385 meters high) belongs to the famous Vilcanota mountain range very close to Cusco. This peak is really important for the Inca people, due to is sacred meaning. In addition, the region has several high mountain trails, which are used by the local herders to trade with other agricultural communities. The road of the Apu Ausangate is one of these trails. Moreover, it is a very famous trek in the country.

As for the Nevado Campa (5485 meters high) it has a high pass at around 4950 meters. We’ll get there after crossing the Comercocha and Caycocha lakes. Once here, you will see the shadow of the Campa peak as well as a cirque of mountains that conform the Puka Punta mountain chain.

The landscape you will enjoy during these ascents to the Campa and Ausangate mountains is breathtaking. The Vilcanota mountain range offers more than beautiful summits. Its mythical and historical features as well as its natural wonders make this trip unique.

The best season to come to this Peruvian region is from May till August. I will lead a group between 2 and 12 participants. All members must have some prior climbing experience and a perfect fitness level. It is a demanding expedition.

If you are looking for a big but easier ascent in the region, let me recommend you to climb the Nevado Maparaju, in the Cordillera Blanca. It’s a program I am also leading.

And if you want more details about this program in the Vilcanota or you’re decided to book your place, please contact me now! I will be glad to help you reach the summits of the Campa and Ausangate.
