Description

If you are eager to take part of a spectacular climbing adventure, come with me to this trip to Mount Ishinca! The expedition has quite lots of challenges, marvelous rewards and, also, breathtaking landscapes.

The Cordillera Blanca has many very high peaks to explore.

Mount Ishinca, with its 5530 meters, results one of the most popular summits of the mountain range.

We will find the mountain snuggled between the peak of Ranrapalca to the West and Palcaraju to the East. Both summits are over 6000 meters high.

During the ascent to the mountain’s top, we will encounter solely snow and ice.

Once onthe summit, you will enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding settings. On a clear day, the peaks, covered in snow, are going to be at sight.

Do not miss the amazing opportunity to get to the top and discover these breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca.

The duration of the trip is 3 days. The goal is to get to Ishinca Base Camp on the first day.

Therefore, once we get there, we will have already ascended 4390 meters.

At last, the second day will give us the opportunity of climb upwards and attempt summit.

Don’t forget that our will be your guide and the climbing groups will have 2 to 5 members approximately.

Most importantly, the idea is for your expedition to be both safe and fully personalized.

So, do not hesitate and join me in this fantastic adventure to Mount Ishinca in Perú. I assure you that the view you will get from the peak’s height  will leave you speechless and will be worth the effort. I’ll be waiting for your contact. It will be a pleasure to accompany and guide you to this famous top in the Cordillera Blanca.
