  • Enjoy spectacular views from the summit of the mountain

  • Learn new mountaineering skills from an expert guide

  • Experience the physical challenge of ascending a mountain in the Andes


Experience the magic of Nevado Qampa as we make the ascent to the summit over three days. Situated in the Vilcanotas Range of the Andes, the views we’ll get from the top are beautiful and unforgettable.

We’ll pick you up from Cusco to start our journey to the mountains. On our first day, we’ll focus on climbing to base camp, getting to grips with our equipment and resting before an early start the next day.

On the second day, we’ll take on the summit. The climb is technically not so difficult, however, we will have to hike on a glacier. We’ll provide you with all the equipment you need for this, but it will be physically demanding. You’ll need a good level of fitness for this trip.

When we reach the summit we’ll take some time to truly absorb the magic of being that high up and enjoy the views. We’ll even be able to see Salkantay, the highest peak in the Vilcabamba mountain range, from the summit.

That evening we’ll enjoy a meal together back at base camp and reflect on our day’s achievement.

This is a special trip as you’ll be surrounded by majestic mountains. It’s also a great way to get started with mountaineering. Don’t wait, request to book today!
