Description

Are you looking to reach an emblematic Peruvian summit? Then climbing Nevado Pisco is the adventure for you!

Nevado Pisco (5752 m) is a great option for a mountain climb. In fact, it is a perfect if you are acclimatized. You don’t need previous experience: I will guide you to reach this summit.

The ascent is not too steep and moderately difficult. And during the way, the views of Cordillera Blanca are truly magnificent. For example, you’ll see Mount Huascarán (6768 m), the highest mountain in Peru. In fact, this 3-day trip is a perfect immersion in Peru’s natural environment.

Does this climbing trip sound tempting? Then please contact me and let’s go on this adventure together!

Hiking trips in my country, Peru, are my specialty. In addition to the one presented here, I can offer for example hiking around Alpamayo and Huascaran or climbing Nevado Vallunaraju.

Itinerary

Day 1

Huaraz - Base Camp (4700 m)

Arrival at Base Camp. This is one of the easiest mountains in the area. Keep in mind that it’s a real high tour with 30° ice passages and chinks on the glacier.

We start at Cebollapampa to reach the basecamp of Nevado Pisco. After a first steep, a flatter part continues. Then we will meet a small waterfall and reach a small area which is ideal to build our base camp.

Day 2

Ascent - Summit Nevado Pisco (5760 m) - Base Camp

The summit of the Pisco could also be reached in 2 days, but in order to acclimate us we will better spend some more time.

We will start to climb to the top some time before sunset. It’s important to carry headlamps, as they will be lighting our way through stony grounds.

Then we will pass an area of slidy rocks below the Huandoy glacier where we have to calculate with falling stones and be very careful. On the other side of the glacier there are dark rocks that serve us a better way to the top of Nevado Pisco, although they don’€™t seem to be quite consistent.

Soon we will be arriving to the base of the Nevado Pisco’s glacier. In almost every case, there is a clear trace showing us the way to the saddle. We have to follow the steep ascent before reaching the top at 5760 m.

From the summit we can observe many mountains such as Huandoy, Chopiqualqui and giant Nevado Huascarán.

Day 3

Base Camp - Huaraz

After having breakfast we will start descending to Cebollapampa. Our transfer will we waiting for us. End of services.
