The Cordillera Blanca, or “White Range” in English, is the highest tropical mountain range in the world. It lies in an exceptionally beautiful region with many lakes and glaciers. We invite you to join a certified, experienced mountain guide on this 17-day adventure and summit the Nevado Pisco and Alpamayo mountains.
Previous mountaineering experience isn’t necessary to climb Nevado Pisco, though you should have a good level of physical fitness. Upon reaching the summit you’ll be amazed by the view; you can admire the Huandoys, Alpamayo, Artesonraju and Chopicalqui peaks as well as the two highest mountains in Peru, Huascaran Sur and Huascaran Norte.
The pyramid-shaped Alpamayo is the most conspicuous of the Cordillera Blanca, with one side covered with huge ice shelves. It’s a challenging climb which should only be attempted by those with experience summiting high peaks.
The Cordillera Blanca is a dream destination for mountaineers. Book now for the trip of a lifetime exploring this stunning region.

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.
