    A great combination of hiking and mountaineering in one of the best places of the Peruvian Andes. Join me in this 12-day hike in Quebrada Quilqueyhuanca with a summit attempt to Ishinca peak. 

    The trekking in Quebrada Quilqueyhuanca I am proposing is a short hike among a valley far from the crowds. Moreover, this trek will be the best way to acclimatize our bodies before the big climb. It is also a nice opportunity to enjoy an activity with your family. The road does not present major difficulties.

    When the trek progresses you will also find a 13-km-long gorge in the heart of Quilqueyhuanca Valley. It leads directly to a cirque of mountains over 6.000 meters high. The scenery at this point is really stunning. However, what make it most beautiful is the green grass dominated by cows, horses and donkeys.

    Finally, you will also discover several archaeological remains. And it is worth mentioning the Quilqueyhuanca wildlife. During the trek you will admire from small birds to amazing foxes.

    The second stage of this trip, after the acclimatization trek, consists in climbing the Ishinca Peak. With that goal in mind we will trek across the Ishinca Valley.

    Ishinca is a perfect option for those climbers who want to summit a 6000-meter peak with a encouraging landscape around. And even if you don’t reach the top it is anyway an incredible climbing. On the way up you will have the best views of Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju, Ranrapalca, and the Palcarajus.

    Please, find at the end of this description a detailed itinerary of this 12-day hike and climb in Peru. For any other doubt or question feel free to contact me.

    As your guide, I’ll put all my background and expertise to your service. Please, get in touch with me and book your place for this exciting adventure.
