Enjoy a previous acclimatization trek to get ready for 3 big goals: the Urus, Ishinca and Huascaran summits. You will have the help of a local certified mountain guide from Huaraz.
Jun, Jul, Aug
It’s my pleasure to invite you to this 21-day mountaineering tour, reaching the highest points of the Cordillera Blanca. During this program, I will help you reach the summits of Urus, Ishinca and Huascaran!
The Ishinca is a popular destination among those climbers in search of a 6000-meter peak. During the ascent we will have the best views of the Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju, Ranrapalco and Palcarajus mountains.
Regarding the Urus peak, it is a perfect mountain for an acclimatization before a bigger goal. It’s more a trekking peak than a real climb. Its normal ascent route goes bordering a small glacier. From its summit you’ll enjoy the most outstanding landscapes. From the Ishinca base camp we can reach this peak as well as many others like the Tocllaraju and the Ranrapalca.
Finally, the Huascaran mountain has two summits: the North and South Huascarán. It is the dream of many climbers since it’s the highest peak of the country and its ascent is not difficult. However, the risk of avalanches makes it a serious climb. The mountain offers several routes to reach the summit. In any case, all participants must have a prior acclimatization.
This triple expedition can be done from June to August, during the driest season of Peru. I can lead groups of no more than 12 guests. Remember all participants must have a perfect fitness level as well as some prior summit experience.
If you want to know more details, please have a look to the sample itinerary at the end of this description. It’s just and example and will vary according to the group level and expectations.

The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.
The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.
From the very first emails communication which was dealt with efficiently and provide all the required information and other options for myself to consider. When I arrived the communication was excellent and very well organised. When I return later this year I will without doubt be using Eric and the team. When we arrive at the start point to getting back the local guide was excellent. I have nothing but praise for the set up.
William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!
Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.
