Join Juventino, local IFMGA guide, on this 17-day climbing and hiking trip in Huayhuash. Pumarinri and Diablo Mudo are some of the ascent options.
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.

I can warmly recommend Eric and his company Peru Expeditions Tours. Eric and his team are very professional. They speak fluent English and Eric speaks German. They answered very quickly to questions before the trip. Eric helped me to organize an excursion to the high camp of Alpamayo. He also helped me to rent the right equipment. I also enjoyed ten fantastic days trekking Cordillera Huayhuash and climbing Nevado Pumarinri (5465 m) and Nevado Diablo Mudo (5350 m) with Eric and his team. The organization and the equipment (tents etc.) of the trekking were perfect and the team surprised me with a birthday cake at the Cashpapampau Camp (at 4500 meters) and they also prepared delicious vegetarian food for me on the hike. After Huayhuash we climbed Mount Tocllaraju (6034 HM), organized by Eric and Peru Expeditions Tours. All the guides who work for Eric are local people with a lot of experience and education in the mountains, they speak perfect English and try to do everything to make the clients happy! Thanks to Peru Expeditions Tours I really enjoyed the time in the mountains around Huaraz. I am looking forward to more treks and climbing with you in the future!
