Description

I invite you to a beautiful, popular and short trek in the Cordillera Blanca, in Peru. It is an 8-day trip around the Santa Cruz Circuit and climbing Nevado Pisco, at 5760 m.

Starting from the city of Huaraz, you’ll enjoy wonderful views of the mountains and lagoons. Besides, there’ll be a hard ascent to ‘Punta Union’, a pass at 4759 m.

Nevado Pisco is a very attractive mountain. Although you need to be acclimatised, it doesn’t require any previous experience.

The ascent is moderately difficult and not very steep.

As a reward, you will have beautiful views of the Cordillera Blanca, like Mount Huascaran, the highest mountain in Peru at 6768 m.

Please contact me if you want to join me for this trek. You can find the itinerary below for further details.

You can also check other trips in Peru, like climbing Nevado Diablo Mudo or Nevado Maparaju.
