Whether it’s from the North, East, South or West, the views you will get to enjoy from the top of the Nevado Pisco are second to none. There are so many impressive peaks you can gaze upon from the summit that it will take your breath away. From Los Cava and the Cerro La Esfinge to the Alpamayo and the highest peak in all of Peru: Huascaran, you will get to enjoy clear views of many glorious peaks. Furthermore, you will also get to gaze deep into the wild, mountainous landscape as well, and its collection of rivers, alpine lakes and more.

Beginning in Huaraz, our expedition will make stops in various places, including Yuraccorral, The Campo Morrena and the base camp of the Nevado Pisco. From each of these spots, you will get to enjoy even more, uniquely mesmerizing views.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. Prior mountaineering experience is recommended as well.

It is a wondrous experience to climb a 5,000 meter plus peak in the Cordillera Blanca. And, it would be our pleasure to lead you on that experience. To join us, please send a request.

An extraordinary expérience with Pablo and Alex, two fantastic guides (and now friends for life) from Huaras, Peru, who are at the same time extremely professional and incredebly flexible. We reached the summit on day 8 to benefit from a good weather window. My heurt is full of gratitude for the who le expérience and the magical encounters I was blessed with during that expedition. Probably amongst the very best memories in my entire life. Thank you si much, guys! And see you soon for new adventures 😛🔥❤️😊

The guide did the absolute minimum he could possibly do. The food provided was definitely not enough for what we were doing. This was already a fast itinerary and he cut it short by two more days. It made it extremely dangerous for us as clients. 2 of the 5 of us had to get flown off the mountain by helicopter due to edema because we didn’t acclimate properly. The guide then lied on social media and claimed 100% success to the summit. He really is a snake. He only cared about cutting everything and doing it as cheap as possible, most likely just to make a few more bucks. If this was a service offered in the U.S., there would’ve been a lawsuit. He should never guide this trip ever again for the pure safety of the clients.
