On our first day we’ll meet at Huaraz at the Campo Base Hostel.
We’ll venture into the Huascaran National Park. And we’ll arrive to the Llaganuco lagoon. Finally, we’ll trek back to Huaraz, where we’ll spend our first night at the Campo Base Hostel.
Our day will begin with a transfer from Huaraz to the Cochapampa lagoon. There, donkeys will wait for us to transport our bags to the Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju base camp. And, once we reach it, we will camp there for the night.
Due to the height and difficulty of the trek we will spend the day at base camp resting. Then, we’ll camp there and spend the night under a mesmerizing blanket of stars.
Our day will begin really early. We’ll ascend through a zigzag type path that we’ll lead us to the Ishinca ice-capped peak. Then, we’ll keep trekking until we reach Ishinca’s summit. Finally we’ll return to our camp for a delicious dinner and to spend there the night.
This last day we’ll head from base camp to the Urus mountain. Then, we’ll trek back to Cochapampa, where a vehicle will be waiting for us to take us back to Huaraz. Finally, we’ll stay at the Campo Base Hostel for our last night.

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.
The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.
I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.
The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
