Today I would like to invite you to the highest mountain of Costa Rica. It’s the famous Cerro Chirripo, at 3819 meters above sea level.
This 4-day ascent to Cerro Chirripo is a great opportunity to discover Costa Rica in a different way. As you may know, it is a really unique country in Central America. Moreover, it is ideally located between the Caribbean and the Pacific oceans, which makes it a really attractive destination.
During this ascent, you will also have the chance to admire and learn a lot about the native flora and fauna of the place. As for the accommodation, we will spend a night in a hotel in San Gerardo de Rivas and the following ones in a cozy mountain hut.
Besides that, you won’t have to worry about the heavy backpacks. This program includes portering service as well as food supply. That way you can move lightly and enjoy the expedition to the fullest.
Regarding the itinerary, we will progressively ascend so you don’t feel the abrupt altitude change. Our base mountain hut is at about 2000 meters.
The second day will be exclusively dedicated to the ascent to the Cerro Chirripo. Furthermore, we can also climb other mountains of the area such as the Cerro Terbi (3760 m) or the Cerro Ventisqueros (3812 m), which is the second highest peak of Costa Rica. In fact, I am also leading a program where we combine the Cerro Chirripo ascent with the Cerro Uran!
Finally, on the fourth day we will return to San Gerardo de Rivas after midday, where this amazing program ends.
Please keep in mind this tour is not technically difficult. And thanks to the help of the porters this trip will be even easier. The only requirement is to have a good fitness level since we must hike between 4 and 8 hours per day.
So, if you find this ascent program interesting please fill out the form and get in touch with me. I have no doubt we’ll have a really good time together!
