We will hike along the valley down to Hauripampa then turn to the right side to climb for above 40 minutes to Vaqueria.

We will also be able to see some big mountain peaks. We will continue down to camp at Cebollapampa.
We will start our climbing program and meet our donkeys who will transport our gear as we climb up the well-marked trail to Pisco Base Camp where we will have overnight.
We will ascend through the moraine field as we continue to our next stop at Moraine Camp. This day, our donkeys cannot join us so we will need to carry our packs as we climb up for 3 hours.
We will start very early at around 2 AM to ensure that we get the prime snow conditions. We will climb for about 40 minutes on moraine until we reach the glacier where we put on our climbing equipment. From here, we will use crampons and rope up. We will climb for approximately 5 hours on the glacier until we reach Mount Pisco summit where we will have amazing panoramic views. We will then descend down to our base camp where we will camp for the night.
We will have our last breakfast in the highland, then pack up camp and descend down to the winding road to Cebollapampa. Our private transfer will join us and bring us back to Huaraz. From there, we will have transfers direct to our hotels.
