Description

An amazing climbing expedition is the best way to discover Nevado Pisco (5760 m), in the Cordillera Blanca. Located in the Huandoy Massif and Yungay province, the Nevado Pisco is an accessible peak. And it has the name of a typical Peruvian drink: the Pisco!

I propose a 3-day program in which we will hike a mountain that offers spectacular views. Also, you will be able to practice your climbing skills

First, we will meet in Huaraz city. Then, we will take a private bus to Cebollapampa. We will appreciate the great sights of Chinacocha and Orconcocha lagoons. Once we arrive in Cebollapampa, we start hiking to Morraine Camp.

The second day is dedicated to our main objective: Nevado Pisco. We will start climbing early in the morning to the summit. Once there,  we will enjoy amazing views of the surrounding peaks. Finally, we will descend to Morraine Camp. The next day, we will go back to Cebollapampa and then to Huaraz.

Nevado Pisco is not a difficult climb. It's ideal for climbers who want to acclimatize for attempting more technical hikes. Even though, you should be in good physical condition to join this program.

So, I invite you to contact me if you are interested in this tour. It will be my pleasure to guide you up there! You can also check my Nevado Vallunaraju 2-day climb expedition.

Where to start, the personal touch, the enjoyment, the focus on the client and safety. A truly enjoyable experience with both brothers. The only bad thing I would say is that the experiences have to come to an end. They have made our honeymoon truly memorable and I wouldn’t change a moment. I would highly recommend using andeanpeaks.com if you want a safe and enjoyable experience with well trained, likeable, friendly, personal and experienced guides. I cannot praise enough. Thank you so so much!!
