Description

A fantastic peak in the Ancash province of Peru, Yanapaccha (5,460m), makes for a great climb. And on this 3-day adventure, we are happy to take you to the peak’s glorious summit.

Positioned between a number of 6,000 meter plus peaks, the summit of Yanapaccha, which is part of the Huandoy Massif, will provide you with stunning, panoramic views of the Cordillera Blanca.

Our trip will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will go to Kilometro 42 before arriving at the Campo Morrena, where we will spend the night. On the following day, from the camp, we will climb up to the summit of the mountain before returning to the Campo Morrena for the night. On the third and final day of the trip, we will return to Huaraz.

While not an excessively difficult climb, scaling Yanapaccha does still require some previous mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

There are a number of amazing peaks to choose from in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru. However, Yanapaccha is definitely one of the best, and a perfect warm-up climb for the bigger, 6,000 meter plus peaks in the area. To enjoy this 3-day climb, please send a request. We have no doubt you’ll have a great time.

We also offer a 2-day climb of Vallunaraju that you can enjoy here.
