Type of Trip
- Enjoy a thrilling 2 day climb of the Vallunaraju peak.
- Admire the beauty of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru.
- Spend a night camping at an altitude of 4,950 meters.
While this trip is only a brief 2 days, in those 2 days, you will get to climb to the summit of the amazing Vallunaraju (5,686m).
One of the more moderate ascents in the Cordillera Blanca, this trip to the summit of Vallunaraju will be unforgettable. The views you will get will stay with you long after you’ve returned home.
The journey to this great mountain’s summit will begin in the town of Huaraz. From there, at approximately 8:00 am, we will make our way to the Vallunaraju base camp (4,650m). After that, we will climb to the Morrena camp (4,950m), where we will spend the night. At the camp, depending on how you feel, we will practice some climbing for the summit ascent on the following day.
Very early, between 2:00 and 3:00 am, we will venture from the Morrena camp to the summit. The time needed to ascend to the summit and descend back to base camp will be approximately 7 to 8 hours. After we reach base camp, we will then take a transport back to Huaraz.
Due to the moderate nature of the trip, the ascent of Vallunaraju is a more accessible climb than several others in the Cordillera Blanca. As a result, as long as you can climb at a moderate level, are at least 18 years old, and are in good physical condition, you can participate on this adventure.
While only 2 days, this amazing ascent of Vallunaraju is definitely a worthwhile experience. If you would like to be a part of it, just send me a request.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
