Daniel is a IFMGA certified guide from Peru who knows the Cordillera Blanca better than anyone. This time, he wants to invite you to a 3-day trek across the Olleros-Chavin trail.

Cordillera Blanca

3 Days

May - Oct


I have the pleasure to offer you this amazing 3-day tour enjoying by foot the Olleros-Chavin trail.

The Olleros-Chavin trek consists in a great hiking adventure across the Huascarán Biosphere Reserve and the Cordillera Blanca. We will also walk along the Pre-Inca trail.

Let yourself venture into the altitude of the mountain passes of over 5000 meters. Moreover, from there we can admire the impressive snow-capped summits of the Huantzán Grande (6395m) and the Cashan (5723m).

This Olleros-Chavin trail leads us to Chavín de Huántar, which is a world Cultural Heritage Site full of granite pyramids and underground structures.

The best period to go on this adventure is during the driest season of the year, from May till October. I can lead a group of 6 participants. However, if you are a larger group I can ask a colleague to join us.

As regards the technical difficulty, it is an easy-moderate trek so all you need is a good fitness level.

Join me if you are looking for a short but challenging adventure in the Peruvian Andes. Contact me! I am here waiting for you message.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Perú.

I was born in the Huaraz city, which is located between cordillera blanca & cordillera negra neighbor of huayhuash mountain range.

My passion for the mountain was born since I was a child, because I watched my father going to the mountain. When I was 13 years old I started going on treks with my father and clients, and as soon as I finished my high school I applied to the high school mountain center studies (CEAM) in 2001 and I graduated as an official mountain guide in 2005.

I have a wide guiding experience in trekking and climbing, organizing, trekking and climbing expeditions into cordillera Blanca & huayhuash in the Peruvian mountains.

I guided successfully in Mexico, Argentina where I climbed conquering the mount Aconcagua at (6959 m).

In Peru I have climbed the most beautiful mountain in the world mount "Alpamayo", and the Peruvian highest peak "mount Huascaran south peak". In 2005 I made a speed record climbing mounts "Alpamayo" & "Quitaraju" in 32 hours 16 minutes. I also opened some new routes to climbing in cordillera Blanca.

Aside from the AGMP / IFMGA certification, I also have the WFR certification.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
