Live an unforgettable experience in the Cordillera Huayhuash. Join this 10-day expedition to the summit of Pumarinri, at 5,450 meters.

Pumarinri is not as famous as other peaks on this majestic mountain range. However, the views it provides from it, and all the way to the Raura Mountain Range, make it a true gem in the heart of the Andes, Peru.

Our adventure begins with acclimatization activities in Cajatambo. Upon completion our private transport will take us to the charming village of Viconga. Here, we’ll get to enjoy amazing hot springs along with mesmerizing views of Pumarinri.

After a well deserved rest, next morning we’ll leave at around 2:00 a.m. towards the summit. Upon arrival, we’ll enjoy hypnotizing sceneries and get ready for our descent to Cuyoq Pass, and later Elefante.

Next morning we’ll head to the San Antonio Pass, from where we’ll get stunning views of Siula Grande. Thereupon, we’ll descend to the Cutatambo campsite.

Then, on day six, we’ll visit Siula Grande. The Simpson-Yates expedition brought fame to this camp, as it inspired the movie and novel Touching the Void. Furthermore, we’ll descend to the Cutatambo Valley and the town of Huayllapa. Here, we’ll have the option to stay, or continue to Huatiac.

On the next morning we’ll continue to the Tapush and Yauatcha mountain passes, which offer unrivalled views of Rondoy and Yerupaja amongst other peaks. Our adventure continues to the campsite at Lake Jahuacocha. And finally, the last day on the road will begin heading to the Jahua Punta Pass, followed by a descent to the town of Pocpa. There, our private transportation will be waiting to take us to back Huaraz.

What people are saying about Peru



The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.



The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.



William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!



Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.



Great service and trip!
