Would you like to enjoy a thrilling mountaineering adventure in South America? Then come to Huaraz, Peru, and join me for an unforgettable ascent to the top of Nevado Pisco, in the Cordillera Blanca!

The Cordillera Blanca is a mountain range that belongs to the Peruvian Andes. It stretches for 200km and includes huge snow-capped peaks, more than 700 glaciers, and beautiful deep-blue colored lakes. Protected by the Huascarán National Park, established in 1975, it is the most extensive tropical range in the world.

On this 3-day mountaineering tour, we will climb Nevado Pisco (5,752m), one of the popular peaks of the Cordillera Blanca. Standing about 60 km north of Huaraz, the capital of the Ancash Region, this impressive mountain belongs to the multi-peaked massif of Huandoy.

The first day, we will hike through the Cebollapampa Valley to the Peru mountain hut, which lies at Pisco’s Base Camp. Then, the next will be summit day: after crossing a stunning glacial moraine we will reach the top of Nevado Pisco. Once there, we will enjoy superb views dominated by the  Huascarán, Chopicalqui, Artesonraju and Alpamayo peaks!

Furthermore, our trip includes two nights at a charming Peru mountain Hut. We will rest surrounded by a unique landscape and enjoy delicious dishes.

Please keep in mind that this alpine adventure requires a good fitness level and acclimatization. We will hike more than 10 hours with a 900m elevation gain. In addition, you should also have some winter mountaineering experience. For more information about the tour, you can check out the itinerary below.

So, if you are up for this exciting ascent to Nevado Pisco, please get in touch with me. Let’s explore part of the Huascaran National Park and enjoy breathtaking views!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
