Nevado Ishinca, Peru, 3 Day Guided Ascent

Nevado Ishinca, Peru, 3 Day Guided Ascent | undefined

Ascent one of the most stunning peaks in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, the Nevado Ishinca, on this 3 day expedition with IFMGA certified guide, Beto.


Cordillera Blanca

3 Days

May - Sep




* Scale one of the most beautiful mountains in Peru, the Nevado Ishinca.

* See the glory of the spectacular Cordillera Blanca.

* Visit the lovely town of Huaraz.


Like most mountains in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, the Nevado Ishinca (5,530m) is a spectacular peak. And for 3 days I would like to guide you to its summit.

The trip will begin in Huaraz. From there we will take a short drive to the trail head at Pashpa (3,670m). Once there, we will perform an equipment check and embark on a scenic 5 hour trek to the base camp of Ishinca, which is otherwise known as the snow covered mountain, where we will camp for the night.

The following morning, we will wake up very early, at approximately 2:30 am, eat breakfast and set out at around 3:00 am. We will hike for 2 hours before reaching the glacier. At that point, we will start ascending for the next 3 hours to the northwest face of the peak. With the sun rising, we should be standing atop the summit of the Nevado Ishinca. From the summit, you will get to see the glory of the Cordillera Blanca, and it’s many peaks, including Ranrapalca (6,162m) and Huantsan (6,369m). We will then return to the base camp for the  night.

On the final day, we will make our way back to Pashpa through the Ishinca valley. Once we reach Pashpa, we will take private transportation back to Huaraz. Thus ending this unforgettable adventure.

Climbing in the Cordillera Blanca is a fantastic experience, and it would be my pleasure guiding you through it. So if you want to scale one of the most impressive peaks in this impressive range, just send me a request.

I can also take you to the summit of the great Vallunaraju on another great 3 day climb in the Cordillera Blanca.
