Description

I recommend this three-day program for beginners or for those wishing to acclimatize before a mountain expedition. We will follow a pre-Columbian road, crossing altitude steppes (Puna), then crossing the collar of Yanashallash (4 700m), the highest point of this tour, where we descend on the eastern side of the Cordillera Blanca. This trek in particular offers a wonderful view of one of the giants of the region: the Huantsan (6 395m). Our final stage will be Chavin, to visit the ancient ceremonial center whose apogee was on the first millennium BC. In the afternoon we will regain the city of Huaraz.

Duration:
– Total trip: 4 days / 3 nights

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm Mountain guide AGMP (Peru) since 1982 and IFMGA (international) since 1988. Technical Director of AGMP (Association of Mountain Guides of Peru) since 1996, I train future mountain guides.

I started as a porter helping my father in an expedition he organized in 1976. During my first expedition, it did not know anything about mountain, I had to do my first rescue because a client got sick. It has been a hard work to evacuate him because the motorway still did not get to Quebrada Honda.

I've organized numerous rescues in the mountains and the Amazon jungle and participated in scientific missions on behalf of American glaciologists as Lonnie Thompson. Familiar of the Alps and the Himalayas, the mountain ranges of Peru have no secrets for me.

Mountains are nice worldwide and give you good memories, but if I had to keep one expedition, I would take one in the Cordillera Blanca, Huandoy (North Face) or Yerupajá maybe.

What I prefer in this job is keeping learning new knowledge, nice life standard, travel and know the world and of course knowing people and cultures. I also like helping in the training of new guides.
