Named the most beautiful mountain in the world by a number of respected publications, Alpamayo (5,947m) is a fantastic peak to admire. It is also a great peak to climb, which is what you will get to do on this 6-day adventure.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz, the wonderful mountainous city in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. From there, we will progressively make our way closer to Alapmayo.

Some of the great spots you will get to visit during our journey up Alpamayo include Cashapampa, Llamacorral and Coraz. Furthermore, in the evenings of this trip, you will be staying in different camps, including the Alpamayo base camp and high camp.

While not an exceedingly difficult climb, our journey will nonetheless have some tough spots. As a result, participants should have prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition.
