I propose a 7-day program full of adventures, breathtaking panoramic views and unforgettable experiences. Come and join me on this unique guided ascent week in Cordillera Blanca to Pisco Summit (5752 m)!

Extending over 200 kilometers, Cordillera Blanca is the most extensive tropical ice-covered range in the world and has the biggest concentration of ice in the country. During this mountaineering adventure, I invite you to explore one of its most popular peaks, the Pisco Summit (5752 m).

First, we will meet in the beautiful capital city of Lima. Then, we will take a private bus to Huaraz where we’ll rest and relax in the Tumi Hotel and get ready to start this mountaineering adventure. On our second day, we’ll transfer to Nevado Pisco Base Camp (4400 m) where we’ll start with our acclimatization process. During the days to come, I will make sure all participants are enjoying themselves in a fun and safe way and that everyone  makes it to the top in the best possible conditions.

This guided ascent week is suitable for intermediate climbers who want to improve their mountaineering techniques. It also is ideal for travelers who want to discover one of the most amazing vistas in South America.  Please bear in mind that all participants will need a good fitness level. 

This mountaineering adventure is the best way to discover the amazing Pisco Summit. So, if you are ready for the challenge, send your request! I guarantee this will be a unique experience!
