2-day trip in the beautiful Cordillera Blanca in Perú, climbing Nevado Vallunaraju (5686 m), an ideal peak for acclimatization, with an IFMGA guide.
Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
The Cordillera Blanca is a great climbing destination, with many peaks over 6000 meters. At 5686 meters the Nevado Vallunaraju is ideal for beginners since it doesn't involve technical difficulties. In addition, you can get stunning views of the whole Cordillera Blanca from the summit.
I recommend this expedition to those who want to have a good acclimatization before a higher mountain in the Andes. It is also an ideal trek to gain some experience in one of the most wonderful mountain ranges in the world.
You can check the itinerary for this trip below. Our starting point will be in Huaraz (3091 m). In fact, this city is a mountaineering destination for climbers from all over the world.
I'm an IFMGA Mountain Guide born in Huaraz, with a wide experience in these mountains. That's why I also organize climbing trips to other peaks in the region. You can check out these programs in the Nevado Pisco (5752 m) or the Nevado Alpamayo (5947 m).
Please contact me if you want to be a part of this 2-day trip to the summit of Nevado Vallunaraju. I will be happy to be your guide in this expedition to the amazing Peruvian Andes.

From the very first emails communication which was dealt with efficiently and provide all the required information and other options for myself to consider. When I arrived the communication was excellent and very well organised. When I return later this year I will without doubt be using Eric and the team. When we arrive at the start point to getting back the local guide was excellent. I have nothing but praise for the set up.
The legend Juventino. My brother and I travelled to Huaraz to climb the Vallunaraju summit. Our guide Juventino has been the best guide I've had over the past years and I have made a lot of hikes and climbing over the world. He is a very talented and experienced guide, he took care of us very much and made sure safety is first. We also had an amazing experience with the food, they cooked delicious meals. They also have top brand quality equipment that made us feel really safe, we had the lucky experience of having a horrible storm at the base camp and I believe that the north face summit series tent they provided saved us!!!! Overall, best guide I have ever had, made us feel very confortable and happy. If you want a guide to feel safe and have the best experience possible go with the legend Juventino!!!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
