Highlights

 
  • Reach the top of two of the most impressive peaks in Peru

  • Stand at the summit of Pisco and Chopicalqui

  • Explore the Cordillera Blanca with an expert guide

 
Discover one of the most beautiful regions on Earth, the Cordillera Blanca. This mountain range is home of some of the most impressive peaks in Peru, such as Pisco (5,752 m) and Chopicalqui (6,354 m).

Pisco and Chopicalqui are two colossal peaks of incomparable beauty. And, they are ideal for those wishing to take part on a high altitude expedition for the first time. They are both physically demanding. But, they don’t require technical skills or previous mountaineering experience.

What’s more, the views we’ll get from the summit of both are mesmerizing. So, from the top, we’ll be able to see other peaks such as Huandoy and Chacraraju.

Also, we’ll get the best view of Peru’s highest mountain, Huascaran Sur. Seeing up close the Huascaran massif, and its two twin peaks, Huascaran Norte and Sur, is a one in a lifetime experience.

Moreover, I will be there with you the whole ascent, making sure you are safe, while having a fantastic time. So, all you have to worry about is enjoying yourself.

If you are up for this mountaineering adventure, just send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable experience in one of the most dazzling parts of Peru.

Please note this is a group trip. But there’s the option of a private program. If you are interested on that option just mention it in the message. Or, you might be interested in a shorter and easier program like this Cordillera Blanca 4-day trek- Santa Cruz to Vaqueria.
