Description

One of the beautiful peaks in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, Vallunaraju (5,686m) is a fantastic mountain to climb. Moreover, it’s actually not a very difficult mountain to climb either. That is why I am happy to offer the chance to reach this mammoth peak’s summit in just 2 days.

Our journey to the summit of Vallunaraju will begin in the beautiful northern city of Huaraz. From there, we will drive for approximately 1.5 hours to the Llaca Valley (4,350m). At the valley you can enjoy some breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca. After our arrival, we will climb for approximately 2 to 3 hours up to the Morena Camp (5,130m), where we will spend the night.

On the second day of the trip, we will make our way up Vallunaraju. The path we will be taking is steady, but not overtly steep or technically difficult. However, the climb is physically taxing. As a result, you should be in good physical condition. Finally, you will really get to push yourself on the final 60 meters of the climb, which is quite steep and exposed. After you’ve soaked up the glory of the great ascent, as well as the amazing views, we will make our way back down to the Llaca Valley, and then Huaraz. The total time of the climb and subsequent descent is approximately 10 hours.

Climbing to the summit of the Vallunaraju peak is an experience you will never forget. To enjoy it for yourself over 2 adventurous days, just send a request.
