Join me on this exciting, enjoyable and rewarding climb up Diablo Mudo, a stunning glaciated peak located within the Cordillera Huayhuash in the Peruvian Andes, and we will hike around some truly epic and awesome landscape and scenery, with the views out over the mountains and valleys that surround us never ceasing to make jaws drop.

Diablo Mudo is a mountain peak located in the Peruvian Andes, and standing at 5,380m high, is one of the more popular and accessible mountains to climb in the Cordillera Huayhuash area, with its glaciated and snow-capped peak making for a highly memorable scene.

After meeting on the 1st morning in Huaraz, we then spend the 2nd day acclimatizing to the high altitude, which entails a hike up to the pretty Churup Lake, located at 4,450m above sea level.

Day 3 is when we really start to tackle some proper climbing, as we meet our donkeys and donkey drivers before climbing up to our Rio Camp campsite, at 3,700m.

Day 4 involves hiking up to Cashpapampa Camp (4,300m), where we will catch our first glimpse of the mighty and majestic Diablo Mudo, before spending the afternoon checking all our climbing gear is in order.

Day 5 is the focal point and undoubted highlight of the trip, as we rise bright and early at 3am in order to climb to the summit of Diablo Mudo. Once there, an immense feeling of satisfaction and reward will wash over you, as the exquisite and spectacular views out over the mountains, valleys and countryside below will absolutely take the breath away.

After the exhilaration of this long day, the final 2 days are spent heading back Huaraz, where our adventure ends, hopefully having given you memories to last a lifetime.

This is a true bucket-list item and a gorgeous way to see the best of Peru – book now so you don’t miss out!
