Highlights

 
     

    Lets conquer 3 amazing peaks of the Cordillera Blanca in the same expedition! One of them, the Huascaran, is the highest mountain of Peru.

    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.

    And if you want to book you place, feel free to contact me. Fill out the form and I will answer as soon as possible to discuss about your big trip to the Cordillera Blanca.

    What People are Saying about Juventino Martin Albino Caldua

     

    The legend Juventino. My brother and I travelled to Huaraz to climb the Vallunaraju summit. Our guide Juventino has been the best guide I\'ve had over the past years and I have made a lot of hikes and climbing over the world. He is a very talented and experienced guide, he took care of us very much and made sure safety is first. We also had an amazing experience with the food, they cooked delicious meals. They also have top brand quality equipment that made us feel really safe, we had the lucky experience of having a horrible storm at the base camp and I believe that the north face summit series tent they provided saved us!!!! Overall, best guide I have ever had, made us feel very confortable and happy. If you want a guide to feel safe and have the best experience possible go with the legend Juventino!!!
