Description

Join me for an amazing 12-day exploration of Vallunaraju and Pisco in the Peruvian Andes! We will reach both summits and enjoy some stunning splitboard descents!

Vallunaraju and Pisco are two very popular mountains in the Cordillera Blanca. Vallunaraju (5,686 meters) is located in the Huaraz province and Pisco (5,752 meters) in Yungay, in the Ancash region.

Vallunaraju is a great peak for climbers of all levels. Its access is not difficult and it is perfect for acclimatization and ice climbing training. As for Pisco, its ascent is suitable for beginners too. This peak is known as the balcony of the Cordillera Blanca from where you can enjoy some breathtaking panoramic views.

However, even if these mountains are beginner friendly, it is important to have a good physical condition in order to join this trip. After reaching some tough spots you should be prepared for splitboarding traverses on some beautiful slopes. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you!

So, if you are up for this climbing and splitboarding experience in the mountains of Vallunaraju and Pisco, please fill the form! I will be glad to show you the way around the wonderful Peruvian Andes.

I also offer a splitboarding trip in Ishinca and Tocllaraju peaks, check it out!

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú, based in Huaraz, Cordillera Blanca.

I like mountaineering and skiing. I recently completed the ski certification in Argentina, so I'm one of the few fully IFMGA certified guides in Peru. I've also guided in Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina and the Alps.

Some of my favourite trips are climbing in the Dolomites, Fitz Roy in El Chalten, and mountain biking across Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
