Considered a classic mountain the Cordillera Blanca, Quitaraju (6,040m) is absolutely gorgeous. As a result, it is very popular with mountaineers visiting from around the world. And, for 6 unforgettable days, we would like to guide you to the summit of this great peak.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will go to Caraz and then Cashapampa, before going to Llamacorral (3,760m), where we will spend the night. On the next day, we will make our way to the Quitaraju base camp (4,300m), which you will get to explore before resting for the night. After that, we will climb up to the high camp of the mountain, which rests at an altitude of 5,400 meters. The day after that, we will climb up to the peak’s majestic summit. For the following two days we will proceed back down the mountain before returning to Huaraz.

While not an exceedingly difficult climb, it is important that participants on this trip have some prior climbing experience, due to the potential difficulties that arise with scaling a mountain of this size. Furthermore, you should be in good physical condition as well.
