Description

This is the ideal trip to immerse yourself in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru.

On this trekking adventure, we’ll get the chance to see up close some of the most impressive peaks in Peru. Some of them are the twins peaks of Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Yanapaccha, Huandoys and Chacraraju.

Moreover, the paths we’ll take are brimming with wonderful andean alpine flora. Many wildflowers like orchids, bromeliads, buttercups, lupines and ranunculus will inundate our trail with their exquisite scent and dazzling colors.

Then, there are other creatures that inhabit these lands too. So keep your eyes open, as you could spot falcons, hawks, mountain caracaras, American kestrels, Andean swifts and hummingbirds gliding in the air. Or you could encounter Andean geese and ducks, puna ibis, Andean foxes and mountain vizcachas roaming around.

As for the itinerary, both days will be full of surprises. On the first one we’ll meet and drive through mesmerizing sceneries along the Callejon de Huaylas Valley. Then, we’ll reach the Huascaran National Park, passing the Llanganuco Lakes and heading to Cebollapamba (3,900m).From there, we’ll hike to the Pisco Base Camp, where we’ll stay at a Mountain Hut for the night.

After a good night sleep, we’ll hike along a rocky the path next day, until we reach an amazing viewpoint. From that spot, we’ll descend to Lake 69 to explore this hypnotizing area. And then, we’ll trek towards the Demanda Valley, back to Cebollapampa, where a vehicle we’ll drive us to Huaraz.

So don’t miss the opportunity to reach the Pisco Base Camp, and explore Lake 69, in the Cordillera Blanca. Send me a request and let’s get prepared for this adventure.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
