Description

Do you want to live an unforgettable climbing experience? Then join me on the 3-day Nevado Urus (5495 m) expedition!

The Urus peak is located in the northern side of the Ishinca gorge, in the Cordillera Blanca. It’s one of the classic climbing routes on this mountain range in Peru.

Also, it’s a great acclimatization climb for reaching higher goals or more difficult technical levels. You don’t need any previous climbing experience to join this tour.

I propose a 3-day program in which you’ll enjoy incredible landscapes while climbing. Also, amazing views of others peaks such as Ishinca, Tocllaraju and Akilpo.

We will meet in the city of Huaraz. From there, we will drive to Cochapamapa where our donkey driver will be waiting for us. And then, we will start our hike until we reach Base Camp.

On the second day, at 3 am, we will start our hike up to the summit, by a steep ridge. We will enjoy spectacular views from the top of the mountain. Finally, on the last day, we will return to Huaraz. You can check the detailed itinerary below this text.

So contact me if you are interested in climbing Nevado Urus! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. You can as well check my Nevado Ishinca 3-day guided ascent. It’s also a good acclimatization climb.
