A combined expedition in the Cordillera Blanca: Santa Cruz Trez + Nevado Pisco climb. Enjoy the company of Juventino, a local IFMGA mountain guide, and visit the most spectacular lakes and mountains of the area with a final summit attack for all levels of climbers.
The Santa Cruz trek is one of the most popular treks in the Cordillera Blanca since we walk around amazing subtropical mountain passes and uncommonly beautiful peaks. Moreover, the big amount of lakes and glaciers we’ll visit during the way make the trail even more fantastic.
The camp sites where we’ll spend the night are some of the most spectacular of the world. As for the acclimatization, we will first do a hike to Laguna Churup, at 4,450 meters of altitude.
Regarding the climbing of Nevado Pisco, it is a perfect option for an acclimatization before a bigger goal. In fact, you won’t need prior mountaineering experience. However, a good fitness level is mandatory. Once at its 5752-meter summit, you won’t believe such an amazing view of the Cordillera Blanca. The panoramic landscape includes the Huandoys, Alpamayo, Artesonraju and Chopicalqui mountains.
At the bottom of this description you can find more details about the day-by-day itinerary. The best season to do this trekking and climbing expedition is from May till November. I can take with me a maximum of 15 participants. You can join an already open group departing in May. On the contrary, I will open a new group for you and your friends.
