Description

The highest mountain in all of Peru, Huascaran (6,768m), is an incredible peak. And, for 6 days, we would like to guide you to the summit of this amazing mountain that is located in the Cordillera Blanca.

There is something unbelievable about climbing to the top of the highest peak in a country. It is almost magical to know that you are standing at the highest point in an entire nation. And, from that summit, even if for just a fleeting moment, it will feel as if you can see the entirety of the country. That is what you’ll get to experience from the top of Huascaran.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will make gradual progress up Huascaran, stopping in various camps along the way.

Due to the sheer enormity of the peak, the journey to its summit will not be easy. Along with being very physically demanding, proper acclimatization is paramount. Furthermore, while not a very technical climb, Huascaran does nonetheless offer some challenging aspects, including the crossing of large cracks and the risk of avalanche. As a result, participants on this trip, along with being in good physical condition, should have prior mountaineering experience.

Climbing Huascaran in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru is a journey you will never forget. To take the journey with us, all you have to do is send a request. We look forward to guiding you.
