  • Enjoy a full-day climb to the summit of Huarapasca in Peru.
  • Marvel at some great views of the surrounding peaks in the Cordillera Blanca.
  • An easy climb, this trip is open to climbers of varying levels.


At first, when looking upon the mammoth peaks in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, it would appear that every snow-capped peak is difficult to climb. However, there are actually some relatively easy, yet still giant, mountains in the range that you can climb, in just a single day! One of those mountains is Huarapasca (5,418m).

Incredibly accessible, Huarapasca has 3 slopes of 60 to 70 degrees, which make them perfect to gain experience with climbing. Climbing this mountain is also a perfect way to get properly acclimatized if you have ambitions on climbing other, larger peaks in the area. Finally, the views you will get from the summit, not just of the Cordillera Blanca, but also Huayhuash, Negra and Hualcan, are incredible.

Our trip will begin in Huaraz, very early, at 3:00 am. From there, we will go to the Campo Morrena (4,950m). After that, we will climb to the summit of Huarapasca, which you will reach in the morning, where you can see the sun shining. We will then descend the mountain and return to Huaraz.

While this trip is available to climbers of various levels, it is important that all participants are in good physical condition.

Would you like to climb a 5,000 meter plus peak in Peru in just 1 day? If so, send a request and join us on this trip to the summit of Huarapasca.
