  • Reach the tallest mountain in Peru with a guide.

  • Spend 6 days exploring the peaks in the Andes.

  • Acclimatize in the Santa Cruz Valley.


Today I bring a big plan for you. Climb with me the Nevado Huascaran and conquer its 6768-meter summit. It will be a memorable week in which I will help you overcome your own limits!

As you may know, Nevado Huascaran is the highest peak in Peru. Lying inside the Huascaran National Park, this mountain is also part of the Cordillera Blanca. Moreover, it offers a challenging ascent and a different option for those climbers in search of a really high summit.

If you want to enjoy this program to the fullest, keep in mind you’ll need good acclimatization. That is why we’ll reach the Huascaran summit after 4 days of preparation. Besides that, it’s good to mention that you can do a better warm up in the Santa Cruz valley. It’s a program I also offer and you can check it out here.

The best season to climb the Huascaran peak is during the Andean winter, from May till August. I will lead a group of 2 people maximum. If you are more than 3, I will ask a colleague to assist us.

So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with me now, ask me all your doubts and book your place. It’s an experience you won’t forget in your life!
