Description

Join me on this unforgettable climbing expedition in Peru. Reach three of the most stunning peaks in the Cordillera Blanca, Urus (5,495 m), Ishinca (5,530 m) and Tocllaraju (6,034 m). Don’t miss the chance to stand at the top of these colossal mountains!

Over a week, I will take you to the summit of three iconic peaks in the Cordillera Blanca. Each one has its own personality, its own and unique beauty, offering some of the most breathtaking views in the country. Climbing each one will give you a whole different experience, a one in a lifetime opportunity.

Moreover, all of them are perfect for acclimatization before attempting higher ascents. And they don’t necessarily pose technical difficulties. Thus, they are all perfect to get more confidence and practice on your climbing skills. But, they are also accessible if you don’t have previous experience and wish to gain some.

We’ll begin our mountaineering adventure in the town of Huaraz. So it will be the perfect excuse to get visit this gorgeous place and learn about the local culture. What’s more, we’ll get to try the local cuisine, which is famous around the world.

Then, from Huaraz, we’ll head to the Ishinca Base Camp. This will be our hub for the next few days, as it has the perfect location, and will give us access to the three peaks we’ll explore.

Aside from the chance to get to the top of Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju, we’ll also have the opportunity to visit many other wonderful places. One of the places I’ll guide you to is the lake Tocllacocha, a dazzling mountain lake surrounded by the most mesmerizing andean sceneries.

So if you want to join this expedition, just send me request. I promise it will be an adventure you will cherish for life!

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Perú.

I was born in the Huaraz city, which is located between cordillera blanca & cordillera negra neighbor of huayhuash mountain range.

My passion for the mountain was born since I was a child, because I watched my father going to the mountain. When I was 13 years old I started going on treks with my father and clients, and as soon as I finished my high school I applied to the high school mountain center studies (CEAM) in 2001 and I graduated as an official mountain guide in 2005.

I have a wide guiding experience in trekking and climbing, organizing, trekking and climbing expeditions into cordillera Blanca & huayhuash in the Peruvian mountains.

I guided successfully in Mexico, Argentina where I climbed conquering the mount Aconcagua at (6959 m).

In Peru I have climbed the most beautiful mountain in the world mount "Alpamayo", and the Peruvian highest peak "mount Huascaran south peak". In 2005 I made a speed record climbing mounts "Alpamayo" & "Quitaraju" in 32 hours 16 minutes. I also opened some new routes to climbing in cordillera Blanca.

Aside from the AGMP / IFMGA certification, I also have the WFR certification.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
