    Have you ever dreamed of reaching a summit over 5000 meters of height? So this 3-day ascent to the Huamashraju is perfect for you!

    Let me help you make your dream comes true. The Nevado Huamashraju is a pyramidal mountain near the city of Huaraz. You can even see it from any point of the town. However, you will admire a really amazing view once you’re at its summit.

    First, we will get to the starting point of the ascent route by a taxi. It will take us at the end of the road on the other side of the Pitec valley. Now, it’s time to hike!

    When we start the walk the trail becomes steep for the next 4 hours. After that, we’ll be finally in the base camp. However, if it means too much effort to you, don’t worry. There are donkey options all along the way. You can hire one to help you carry your luggage.

    Once in the base camp, we’ll have several ascent options to get to the Huamashraju summit. We can climb the glacier through its two ways or we can try a climb via the left ridge or its north wall.

    As for the left ridge it has only one hard section. In fact, I think it is the best alternative for those without too much experience. The north wall has more technical sections but with no major difficulties.

    If you’ll go down via the same route you ascended, remember to bring some belay gear. On the contrary, if you decide to mix the alternatives, you can ascend through the left ridge or the north wall and descend by the glacier. In that case, you will need 3 or 4 pickets.

    The Huamashraju is a great option as a technical acclimatization climb. It is also a good idea if you don’t have so many days in the area. In addition, if you are short of time but want live a big experience, I recommend my hiking adventure through the Santa Cruz Trek. It can be done in 5 days or less.

    I will lead a group between 2 and 15 participants. I don’t have an open group yet so I can open a new one for you and your friends! The best season to come is from April till November.

    So, contact me for more details or if you want to start with the booking process. I will be happy to guide you up to that 5434-meter summit!
