Have you ever dreamed of climbing a snowy peak of more than 5000 meters? Now, it’s time to make your wish come true!

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.
