Nevado Tocllaraju (6034 m) is one of the most beautiful mountains of Cordillera Blanca. Also, it’s one of the favorite ascents among mountaineers in Peru.

Today I want to invite you to a 4-day climbing program to Nevado Tocllaraju summit. This amazing mountain offers fantastic views from the top. Also, it can be climbed down without any rappels.

This peak, with many glaciers surrounding it, lies in Huascaran National Park. Most important, this is a great experience if you want to attempt bigger objectives in the future.

Please note that this expedition is of a high difficulty level. So, you must have previous experience to join it. Besides, you need to be in excellent shape. You can check the day-by-day program below this text.

So contact me if you want to discover Nevado Tocllaraju. I’ll be happy to be your guide! Also, I offer a great 6-day guided climb to Nevado Huascaran summit. Check it out!
