Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju, Alpamayo, 20 Day Ascents | Peru

Not specified

20 Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




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.

Mountain 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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
