    For 20 days, I want you to experience an unforgettable adventure exploring and scaling 4 the most famed peaks in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of Peru: Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju, and Alpamayo.

    Starting in the Peruvian capital city of Lima, the adventure will begin with an 8 hour bus ride to Huaraz (3,100m). In Huaraz, which is the capital of the Ancash region, you will get to spend a day acclimatizing at the beautiful Laguna 69.

    After leaving Huaraz, we will then proceed to the first peak of the trip, Ishinca (5,530m). Filled with amazing views, we will spend a few days ascending and descending this peak. Afterwards, we will move on to the next peak on this adventure, Urus (5,490m). This enormous mountain is actually one of the easiest to climb, and presents some fantastic glacier views as well.

    The next peak we will venture to on this trip is the highest of the 4: Tocllaraju (6,034m). The views from this mountains’ summit are definitely some of the most spectacular you will ever see.

    Following the ascent of those 3 beautiful peaks, we will then return to Huaraz, where you will get a day to rest, relax and explore. Afterwards, we will take a bus Cashapampa (2,900m) and start trekking to Llamacoral (3,760m), where we will spend the night. The next 4 days will be dedicated to the majestic Alpamayo mountain (5,947m). The ascent to the summit will take place early in the morning, and the views from the peak’s apex, with the sun rising, will create a memory that will last a lifetime.

    Following the descent of Alpamayo, we will then proceed back to Huaraz, and then on to Lima, where you will catch your flight home.

    With 4 fantastic peaks to climb, this trip is a true adventure. And over the course of 20 days you will get to see so much that you will be recalling what will seem like new memories long after you’ve returned home. 

    So send me a request, and let me guide you on this amazing expedition.

    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.
