Description

Let me invite you to live an unforgettable 5-day ascent to Diablo Mudo (“Mute Devil”), a mountain at 5.350 meters of height in the Huayhuash Range.

Diablo Mudo is one of the most challenging routes in Perú due to its moderate obstacles during the ascent. But if you have strength, determination and a some experience, it will be a great challenge for you!

Although this mountain is not as high as its six-thousand-meter neighboring peaks, once you’re at the summit you won’t believe such a stunning viewpoint.

I think that the remoteness and wildlife around Diablo Mudo is ideal for those who love big challenges far from the crowds with ice slopes up to 45° and rocky surfaces.

As for the itinerary, we will ascend by the Cashpapampa base camp. Then we will walk down to the Huacrish Valley and the amazing Jahuacocha Lake. Please find more details at the end of this description.

Peru and its peaks give you the opportunity of challenging yourself. Contact me now by clicking on the green button and let’s fulfill this goal in Huayhuash!
