A technically easy one-day ascent to the Nevado Mateo in the Cordillera Blanca. This amazing and fun expedition will be led by one of our local certified guides.
May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
Open To Everyone
Let's climb the Nevado Mateo in just one day. It is one of the amazing ice-capped peaks of the famous Cordillera Blanca. The total altitude of the Nevado Mateo is 5150 meters and its ascent is considered technically easy. That way, it can perfectly work as your first climbing experience since you won't need any technical skill.
However keep in mind that, like in any mountaineering ascent, the climb implies some risks which should not be taken lightly. That is why it is always mandatory, especially for beginners, to do it with a certified mountain guide. I can therefore guarantee that you will enjoy this experience safely.
For better acclimatization and performance in the ascent, we will start the trip with a tour to the Nevado Pastoruri. On the way back, after reaching the top of the Nevado Mateo, we will visit the Cancaraca Lagoon, crossing the Punta Olímpica tunnel. Finally, we will taste a delicious ice cream in Carhuaz.
This one-day ascent can be also a preparation for bigger goals in the area. For example, this 3-day trek in the Quilcayhuanca Valley that I am leading.
So, let me help you conquer your first high summit in the Cordillera Blanca. Contact me now for further details or if you want to make your reservation.

The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.
The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.
From the very first emails communication which was dealt with efficiently and provide all the required information and other options for myself to consider. When I arrived the communication was excellent and very well organised. When I return later this year I will without doubt be using Eric and the team. When we arrive at the start point to getting back the local guide was excellent. I have nothing but praise for the set up.
William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!
Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.
