Description

Today I would like to propose a different experience in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. There will be 4 magic days in which we will attack two important summits of Peru: the Urus and Ishinca peaks!

This mountaineering program is suitable for those climbers who are in search of conquering two mountains on the same trip.

The Nevado Urus, at 5420 meters of altitude and the Ishinca peak at 5530 meters are two of the most important summits of the region. Moreover, together with the Nevado Tocllaraju, they imply a must-climb for mountaineers all around the world. That is why I am also leading this 7-day ascent to these 3 mountains. It is a really unforgettable adventure for well trained people.

The best period to come to the Cordillera Blanca is from May till September. I can guide a group of 3 guests as maximum. Please find more details about the day-by-day at the end of this page.

I will be waiting for your contact so we can discuss and plan your next adventure up to the Urus and Ishinca summits! I have no doubt it will be one of the best experiences of your life. Get in touch with me!
