Miguel, IFMGA certified mountain guide, takes you to the summit of two amazing mountains in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca: Pisco and Alpamayo. Join him on a stunning 12-day trip!
The Peruvian Cordillera Blanca, Spanish for “white range”, is part of the Andes range and extends for 200km. In this trip you can join me on a 12-day ascent to two of its most popular peaks: Pisco and Alpamayo!
We will meet in the Peruvian city of Huaraz. First we will do some acclimatization hikes to the lagoons of Wilcacocha (3,800m) and Churup (4,450m). Then, when we are ready, we will attempt the summit of Mount Pisco.
Pisco is a spectacular pyramidal peak located in the Llanganuco Valley. It is an ideal climb both for beginners and for more experienced climbers who want an easier climb for acclimatization purposes before tackling higher mountains. Most of the way is not steep and not technical, so it is an achievable climb for anyone in good physical conditions.
After reaching the summit of Pisco, we will be prepared for Alpamayo. This stunning mountain is one of the world’s most iconic peaks, and climbing it is a challenging but rewarding adventure. It boasts 366m of alpine ice, much of it at an angle of 60 degrees or steeper.
The Cordillera Blanca includes 33 peaks over 6,000m and lots of beautiful lakes, glaciers and rivers. While heading up to the top of Pisco and Alpamayo we will enjoy fabulous alpine landscapes.
So, if you are up for an amazing mountaineering adventure in the Cordillera Blanca, please contact me. I’ll be happy to be your guide on this unforgettable 12-day ascent to Pisco and Alpamayo!
I also offer a longer tour where we will reach the summits of these mountains and also the summit of Huascaran (the highest mountain in Peru): check it out!

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú, based in Huaraz, Cordillera Blanca.
I like mountaineering and skiing. I recently completed the ski certification in Argentina, so I'm one of the few fully IFMGA certified guides in Peru. I've also guided in Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina and the Alps.
Some of my favourite trips are climbing in the Dolomites, Fitz Roy in El Chalten, and mountain biking across Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
