Description

Explore some of the most stunning peaks in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru on this amazing trip. During 19 days, I’ll take you to the summits of Urus (5,450 meters), Ishinca (5,530 meters) and Alpamayo (5,947 meters) for an amazing experience and some outstanding views. Follow me!

This exciting adventure will take place in the beautiful Huascaran National Park. We’ll begin by taking a bus from Lima to Huaraz. From there, we’ll ascend the three summits with an acclimatization hike to Laguna Churub and some rest days. Make sure to read the proposed itinerary below. The program may change due to weather conditions.

The first two peaks will be a preparation for the most challenging one: Alpamayo, considered the most beautiful mountain in the world. It has a characteristic pyramidal shape and is one of the highest points in the national park. Its ascent is considered between moderate and difficult, mostly depending on the time of the year. I strongly recommend you are physically prepared for the trip so you can handle the altitude better.

Book your trip now! I would love to guide you on this wonderful and challenging experience.

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.
