It’s a honor for me to guide you to the highest point of Perú: the summit of Nevado Huascaran!
I would like to invite you to this 7-day ascent which consists in conquering the 6768-meter-high peak of Huascaran. As you may know, it is a snow-capped massif of the western Peruvian Andes, in the region Áncash. Moreover, it is part of the famous Cordillera Blanca and lies within the Huascaran National Park.
The Nevado Huascaran has two peaks: the north summit at 6655 meters and the south summit at 6768 meters (our goal). This one is the highest point of the country and of the whole intertropical zone.
It is such an immense mountain that it is also the fifth highest peak in the American continent. And if the measurement were made from the center of the earth, this would be the second highest mountain in the world, after the Chimborazo volcano. In 2013 a team of Australian and German researchers revealed that Huascaran is the surface with the least gravitational force on earth.
It is a really interesting adventure and of course, a challenge you have to be ready to cope with. Therefore, it will be necessary an acclimatization climb to prepare our bodies for the ascent. I can suggest this 4-day ascent to Nevado Pisco, which woks perfectly as a warm-up.
The best months to climb the Huascaran are June, July and August. I will lead a group of 2 mountaineers. That way it will be a fun, custom and safe adventure for all of you.
