Highlights

  • 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.

Description

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.

Do you want a longer, more difficult climb in the Cordillera Blanca? Then join me on this 5 day ascent of Copachico.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
