Description

Join me for a pleasant day hike just a few miles away from Huaraz, Peru. On this exciting day, I’ll take you to the stunning Laguna Aguak to show you the Andean vegetation and communities.

To reach the dazzling Laguna Aguak, we’ll drive from Huaraz to the Willcahuain village. We will begin our hike from there. As we ascend, the views will become better and better. We’ll get to see summits of the stunning peaks, of Huaraz and the Cordillera Negra. Finally, we will encounter some some difficulties during the last stretch of the trek, mostly due to the altitude, but it will be worth it! The breathtaking lake lies at 4,580 meters above sea level with unforgettable panoramic views of the snow-covered peaks of the Cordillera Blanca. After we reach our destination and enjoy the scenery, we’ll hike back down to our starting point and drive back to Huaraz.

This is a challenging hike due to the altitude. You’ll need to be physically fit to participate. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you!

So, how do you feel about joining a fantastic program to a stunning spot in the Peruvian Andes? Just press the request button and follow me. I would love to be your guide and show you one of the beautiful spots of my country.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Perú.

I was born in the Huaraz city, which is located between cordillera blanca & cordillera negra neighbor of huayhuash mountain range.

My passion for the mountain was born since I was a child, because I watched my father going to the mountain. When I was 13 years old I started going on treks with my father and clients, and as soon as I finished my high school I applied to the high school mountain center studies (CEAM) in 2001 and I graduated as an official mountain guide in 2005.

I have a wide guiding experience in trekking and climbing, organizing, trekking and climbing expeditions into cordillera Blanca & huayhuash in the Peruvian mountains.

I guided successfully in Mexico, Argentina where I climbed conquering the mount Aconcagua at (6959 m).

In Peru I have climbed the most beautiful mountain in the world mount "Alpamayo", and the Peruvian highest peak "mount Huascaran south peak". In 2005 I made a speed record climbing mounts "Alpamayo" & "Quitaraju" in 32 hours 16 minutes. I also opened some new routes to climbing in cordillera Blanca.

Aside from the AGMP / IFMGA certification, I also have the WFR certification.

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.
