We will leave Huaraz by Bus until we are at the Entrance of the Huascarán National Park. After 3 or 4 hours of travel we will arrive at Cebollapampa. From here we start hiking up on a trail to the left of the river that will take us to the base camp of the Nevado Pisco. 2 to 3 hours of walking.
A quiet day to visit the mountain hut and the surroundings of the base camp. Then, we will check the technical material so that, after lunch, we can continue the ascent to the moraine camp. Walking time: 3 to 4 hours.
Today will be a very important day. We will get up at 3 AM to get ready, have breakfast and leave in direction to the summit of the Nevado Pisco. On the way we will have breathtaking views of the Caraz, Artezonraju, Alpamayo and East Pisco mountains. Once at the top, we will also enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the most important snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, such as Huascarán, Chopicalqui, Chacraraju and Huandoy. They are the 4 peaks that surpass the 6,000 meters of height. Finally, we will return to the moraine camp to disarm our tents and descend to the base camp. Total walking time: 8 to 10 hours.
After breakfast we will pack our things and disarm the camp. The team of porters will help us with our last descent to Cebollapampa where the bus is waiting for us to return to the city of Huaraz (3 to 4 hours of travel)
