The Santa Cruz Trek is a very popular hiking option in the Cordillera Blanca. But today I’d like to propose you a bigger plan…
You will not only have the opportunity of walking along the Santa Cruz Trek. You will also live a unique mountaineering expedition up to the summits of 3 amazing peaks: the Urus (5495 m), the Ishinca (5550 m) and the Tocllaraju (6035 m). Therefore, the Santa Cruz Trek will help you acclimatize your body to the height and get ready for the climbing stage of this trip.
As you may know, the Ishinca and Urus peaks do not involve a technical knowledge. However, the Tocllaraju has some stretches of technical and steep climbing. That is why I always recommend to have some prior ice climbing experience. In addition, it is also important that you know how to use crampons and piolets and how to descend by abseiling.
The best season to come to the Cordillera Blanca and enjoy this amazing program is from May till September. I can lead a group of 6 guests during the trekking stage. Once we start the ascensions I will lead a group of no more than 3 participants. If you are a larger group, a mountain guide assistant will join us.
And if you want to climb these 3 peaks but you don’t have so many days in the country, please check out my 7-day program.
If you want to join me in this adventure contact me now and make your reservation. I will be happy to be your guide!
