Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to join me on an incredible 2-day expedition to the Nevado Vallunaraju (5686 m)!

    Located in the Chinchey Massif in the Cordillera Blanca, the Vallunaraju is one of the most popular mountains for mountain lovers. Its Quechua name means “Peak of dreams” and from its top you can enjoy beautiful views of the Andes range.

    We will meet in the city of Huaraz. I propose a 2-day program. First, we will climb to Campo Morrena. It offers an incredible view of the Ranrapalca peak. The second day, we will climb up to the Nevado Vallunaraju summit! Once we get to the top, we will enjoy the most beautiful views of the surrounding peaks. Finally, we will descend back to the camp. A vehicle will be waiting for us to go back to Huaraz.

    Vallunaraju is a favorite among mountaineers because it is quite accesible. Also, it’s a perfect acclimatization climb before attempting a bigger objective. However, you must have some prior experience and a good physical condition. Also, you can check the complete itinerary below this text.

    If you have are interested in this program, don’t hesitate in getting in touch with me! I’ll be glad to guide you there! You can also check my Nevado Urus climbing expedition!
