Description

Stand at the top of Nevado Pisco, a majestic and iconic peak in Peru.

Due to the easy nature of this ascent, it is one of the most popular ones in the country. And from the summit we’ll get a mesmerizing 360º view of the Cordillera Blanca, including Chacraraju, Piramide de Garcilaso, Artesonraju, Alpamayo, Santa Cruz, Huascaran and Huandoy.

On our first day we’ll meet in Huaraz. Then, we’ll ride a private vehicle heading north and driving by Carhuaz, Mancos and Yungay. After about 2 hours we’ll get to the Huascaran National Park entrance. We will keep ascending through Llanganuco, from where we’ll get incomparable views of the Chunacocha and Oroncocha lagoons. And once we reach Cebollapampa our climbing adventure begins, trekking towards the base camp (4,655 m).

After a nutritious breakfast, we’ll get ready for a day full of adventures. And at 11:00 am we’ll begin hiking across a steep road and through a mountain pass, until we reach the Morrena Camp.

Next day, we’ll begin with another energetic breakfast so we can get ready to reach the summit. Our ascent will begin at about 2:00 a.m. via the normal route. Then, after 4 or 5 hours we’ll finally stand at the top. Upon completion, we’ll begin our descent back to the Morrena camp and head to base camp.

On our last day we will leave base camp at 8:00 a.m. trekking towards Cebollapampa or Quebrada Llanganuco. There our private vehicle will take us back to Huaraz.

Would you like to come with me on this mountaineering adventure? Just send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable trip.

Nevado Pisco is located in the Quebrada Llanganuco. So we could also do the Santa Cruz Trek, 8 days to Vaquiera in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru.

About the guide

guide profile img

I’m based in Huaraz, but I have been all over Peru, guiding clients, exploring for myself and getting to know every corner of my beautiful country. I’ve hiked the mighty Cordillera Blanca and the famous Inka Trail. But I’ve also explored the wonderful Peruvian Amazon and climbed to the highest Nevados in the country.

I started working as a mountain assistant a long time ago, and since then I’ve been gaining experience and knowledge to become a UIAGM-IFMGA certified Mountain Guide. I like to work in a team and I'm very efficient in solving unexpected problems so my clients can enjoy their experience as much as possible.
