Description

The Cordillera Huayhuash is a perfect Andean spot of Perú where we can combine trekking and mountaineering. That is what I bring today. A fantastic 17 day adventure in Huayhuash to climb or trek in the Nevado Pumarinri (5465 m) and the amazing Diablo Mudo (5350 m).

Our meeting point will be in Huaraz, in the Ancash District, 400 km from Lima. Our first trek will be from Pitec (3850 m) to the famous Churup Lake, at 4450 meters of height. After some days of acclimatization near Huaraz we'll be transferred to the Cordillera Huayhuash on day 4.

Depending on your wishes and the group level we'll decide if we climb the Pumarinri Peak or go hiking to Punta Cuyoc Pass (5020 m). By day 12 we can try our second goal: the ascent to Diablo Mudo. It's also optional and will depend on your physical and technical level.

At the end of this page you'll find a more detailed day by day program. And if you're in search of a more challenging mountain ascent check out this 3-summit program I lead in the Cordillera Blanca.

Come and join me for such an interesting adventure in Huayhuash. As a local guide with vast experience in the Peruvian Andes I can guarantee a superb experience. Send your request now!

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.
