Cordillera Blanca

4 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Enjoy a 4-day climb of the amazing Chopicalqui Peak in Peru.
  • From the summit, bask in the great views of Huascaran.
  • Spend your nights in various camps as you progress further up the mountain.


At 6,354 meters, Chopicalqui is definitely an impressive mountain. And, on this 4-day expedition, we would like to guide you to the summit of this great peak.

Located in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, Chopicalqui rests peacefully in the shadow of the north face of the mammoth Huascaran peak (6,768m). However, just because the peak is in the shadow of the country’s highest mountain, doesn’t mean it is any less impressive. Typically covered in snow, the Chopicalqui peak will definitely take your breath away. And, as we make our way up the peak, the views you will get of its neighbouring peaks only gets more and more incredible.

Like most climbing expeditions in Peru, our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will venture to several camps, each one higher than the last. Those camps include the Chopicalqui base camp, the Morrena Camp, and the mountain’s high camp. Each one of these camps will provide you with some amazing viewpoints of the surrounding landscape that includes a beautiful forest and various alpine lakes.

Needless to say when climbing a peak higher than 6,000 meters, but all participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. You should also have some prior mountaineering experience.

Would you like to climb one of the Cordillera Blanca’s finest peaks? Then send a request and join us on this 4-day journey to the summit of Chopicalqui. We have no doubt you’ll have an amazing time.

We can also take you to the summit of Alpamayo on this 6-day trip.

What people are saying about Andean Raju Expeditions

The guide did the absolute minimum he could possibly do. The food provided was definitely not enough for what we were doing. This was already a fast itinerary and he cut it short by two more days. It made it extremely dangerous for us as clients. 2 of the 5 of us had to get flown off the mountain by helicopter due to edema because we didn’t acclimate properly. The guide then lied on social media and claimed 100% success to the summit. He really is a snake. He only cared about cutting everything and doing it as cheap as possible, most likely just to make a few more bucks. If this was a service offered in the U.S., there would’ve been a lawsuit. He should never guide this trip ever again for the pure safety of the clients.
