Highlights

 
     

    Ishinca and Tocllaraju are two mountains in the Cordillera Blanca, a part of the Peruvian Andes. This 12-day splitboarding trip is your chance to visit their summits and to enjoy an unforgettable adventure under my expert guidance!

    Rising 6,034 meters above sea level, Tocllaraju is one of the highest peaks in Perú. It is also a very popular destination for mountaineers and winter sports lovers from all around the world. As for Ishinca, it is 5,530 meters a.s.l. and is located in its namesake Ishinca Valley, a perfect starting point for all kinds of adventures.

    On this program, we will head to the top of both peaks using the Ishinca Refuge and the Morrena Camp as bases. Additionally, we will also enjoy some stunning splitboard traverses on top quality snow. And, we will revel in the beautiful landscapes including the Wilcacocha and the Churup lakes. 

    You will need prior mountaineering experience and a very good physical condition to be part of this adventure. However, although it is a challenging outing, we will guide you safely and spend a fabulous time together.

    So, if you want to live a once-in-a-lifetime splitboarding experience, please contact me! I am sure that you will love Ishinca and Tocllaraju, two highlights of the Peruvian Andes.

    And if you prefer skiing, I also offer a ski touring version for this same destination!

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú, based in Huaraz, Cordillera Blanca.

    I like mountaineering and skiing. I recently completed the ski certification in Argentina, so I'm one of the few fully IFMGA certified guides in Peru. I've also guided in Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina and the Alps.

    Some of my favourite trips are climbing in the Dolomites, Fitz Roy in El Chalten, and mountain biking across Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
