Chopicalqui (6350 m) 4-day climb with a guide

A real challenge led by Quique, a local IFMGA mountain guide. Climb with him the Chopicalqui mountain in a 3-to-4-day expedition via its southwest ridge.

Mountain RangeCordillera Blanca
Duration4 days
Offer periodMay, Jun, Jul, Aug
Type of tripNot specified


Today I bring a challenging proposal for you! Let’s climb together the Chopicalqui Peak, at 6350 meters of altitude.

Imagine the immensity of this mountain that it can be seen from the Portachuelo de Llanganuco pass. The Chopicalqui summit is undoubtedly a unique climbing opportunity for those who love high adventures.

The Chopicalqui is the third highest peak of the Huascarán massif, located in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca. It is also the fifth highest mountain in the province of Yungay and the fourth of the entire mountain range.

It will be a 3 or 4 day expedition in which you must climb on ice. I think it is a unique experience full of emotions, effort and rewarding feelings. We will reach its summit by the southwestern crest with the plus of finding really deep snow.

Once you are at more than 6000 meters high, you won’t believe such a spectacular view. The Huascaran, Chacraraju, Huandoy and the Pisco mountains are some of the main stars of the scenery.

The round trip, up to the Chopicalqui summit and down, will take 3 or 4 days. This ascent is suitable for climbers with some prior experience. In addition, a good fitness level is also mandatory.

So, if you are ready to live this unique adventure, please get in touch with me. As your guide, I will do my best to make you reach that summit in a fun and safe way!
