Description

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.

FAQs

What experience and how fit do I need to be to climb this mountain? Is this program suitable for children or older people?

For this tour you need good physical condition, and also before going better to do some mountain climbing courses. We recommend for this trip to be between 18 years old and approximately 60 years old, but if the participant feels very well trained in the 3 aspects that are very important, such as being physically, technically, and psychologically prepared. Then, the participant is ready to take on this challenge and climb this summit. For more information, we can schedule a call via WhatsApp. In order to request information about you, we would like to receive your experience from your CV of mountain climbing from your previous trips.

How far in advance should I start training and what kind of training do you suggest?

For this type of demanding or technical climbing sports, it is recommended to do some summits above 5 thousand meters beforehand and have good knowledge of high mountain technical equipment such as the use of technical ice axes, ice screws, correct use of crampons, and of course all the technical material. For more information, we can schedule an appointment to be able to explain in more detail everything about the mountain equipment and the preparations prior to joining our outings.

Will I need to bring any technical equipment of my own? Is it possible to rent equipment, and if so, what would be the approximate cost of that?

For this trip, personal equipment & personal technical equipment is not included, so you have to have your own equipment, such as personal equipment (such as boots, ice axe, crampons, harness, sleeping bag, mat, Gore-Tex, etc.) If you do not have this list, it is possible to rent the whole list in Huaraz. For detailed information, send you the entire list that you should have, and you can contact us for more precise information. We can also schedule a call via WhatsApp and we will announce more details about this question.

Will there be porters to help to carry group and personal equipment?

In some sections, we have porters but if you want an extra porter for your personal belongings there is an additional cost of USD 65 per day. In some sections, we will use mules or donkeys to the base camp. For more information, we can schedule a call and we can explain how the trip will be executed.

How will accommodation and meals be handled on the mountain?

During the trek & mountain, we will sleep in high-altitude tents, and within our budget, the tour includes breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner. If you have any more questions, we can schedule a call to explain all the details of the trip.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

In case of bad weather, the local guide who is a certified guide will make the most correct decision on what to do at the moment. One more day of reservation can be added, but this will have an extra cost. The final decision will be made on the ground by local guides. If you have any other questions, we can fix a date to explain.

Are there any other special requirements such as permits/insurance/vaccines that we need to consider before the tour?

To enter the Cordillera Blanca Huascaran National Park, a fee of 150 soles per person is paid. We recommend having the mandatory vaccines that are required by world health the COVID-19 vaccine, and we also recommend having accident insurance. We always recommend Partners –Global Rescue. If you have any more questions about the trip, we can schedule a call via WhatsApp.

What is the guide-to-client ratio to climb this mountain?

For these mountains, for non-technical mountains, a guide takes 3 clients so a Ratio 3pax = 1 local guide. For technical access mountains, the guide takes a maximum of 2 clients, meaning a ratio of 2 customers = 1 local guide.

What is the best time of the year to climb this mountain?

The best time to climb these peaks is from May to September. As well we offer all the year.

Can I join a group?

For trips whether trekking or high mountains, going privately is the most recommended option, but the costs are more expensive. So, if one joins a group, the prices will be more reasonable. In the mountains, the only disadvantage is if you are in a wall with another partner and if one of the participants gets tired or gets sick. In this case, you have to abort or cancel the summit and return together. For more information, contact us. We can schedule a call via WhatsApp to clarify all your questions.

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!!!

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.
