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 spectaculars 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 to 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. Next day, we will go back to Cebollapampa and then to Huaraz.

Nevado Pisco is not a difficult climb. Its 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 interestedin this tour. It will be my pleasure to guide you up there! You can also check my Nevado Vallunaraju 2-day climb expediton.
