    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!
