5 Days

Peru is one of the best places to practice mountaineering, especially the Cordillera Blanca. We would like to invite you to participate in a challenging and rewarding program to the impressive summit of Ranrapalca (6,162m) on an expedition that will take us 5 days to complete. Join me!

Our journey to the summit of Ranrapalca will begin in Huaraz, where we’ll have an acclimatization day. Then, we’ll enter the Huascarán National Park and follow the path to the top of this incredible mountain. Finally, we’ll reach the summit and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views it offers.

The path we’ll follow features both easy and difficult stretches. Therefore, although you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy each area, it is of vital importance that you’ve trained for this and that you’ve completed the necessary acclimatization.

If you would like more information on what we’ll be doing each day, make sure to read the detailed itinerary below. This itinerary may change due to weather conditions or any other circumstance that may put the group at risk.

So, are you ready to spend some incredible days in the stunning Cordillera Blanca? Then send your request and let’s tackle the impressive Ranrapalca summit. You’ll love the views from the top!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
