On day 1, we can go rock climbing around Antacocha Lake or, if you don’t wish to climb, we can visit the gorgeous Lake 69, inside the Huascarán National Park.
We’ll enjoy a full day of mountaineering to the summit of Nevado Mateo, at 5,150 meters of altitude.
On this day, we’ll depart from Huaraz at 8 am in the direction of Pashpa, where we’ll begin our 4-hour approach to the Base Camp.
We’ll wake up very early in the morning and depart at 4.30 am to the Ishinca summit. After 1.30 hours, we’ll get to the Ishinca Glacier and then it will take us 3 hours reach the top. Afterwards, we can descend through the same route or across the west face.
Day 6 will also start very early: we’ll wake up at 4 am and depart at 5 am. This ascent is easier and it will take us around 2 hours to get to the summit, from where we’ll gaze at a breathtaking views.
At 10 am, we’ll go on a 2-hour climb and take our equipment to the Morrena Camp, at 5,150 meters of altitude.
On the summit day, we’ll begin our journey at 1 am to get to the top between 7 and 9 am. Then, we’ll begin the descent to the Base Camp, where we’ll relax and celebrate our achievement.
We’ll share breakfast at 8 am and then return to Huaraz.

I am an aspirant IFMGA mountain guide, with extensive experience in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Perú and Ecuador.
I live in Cajón del Maipo, Chile, where climbing opportunities are almost endless!
I do a lot of guiding in South America´s High Mountain, especially on technical routes. I also do rock climbing courses in different parts of Chile and in my city.
During my tours, I try to generate the best experience for my clients, and like to teach them about the cultural and environmental importance of the places we visit.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
