Description

Throughout the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, there is an array of gorgeous peaks that are just begging to be explored, climbed and admired. On this 19 day adventure, I would like to guide you to the summit of three of the most stunning mountains in the entire range: Yanapaccha (5,460m), Pisco (5,752m) and Alpamayo (5,947m). Each one of these mountains presents its own set of challenges. However, each one of these peaks shares one thing in common: an absolutely mesmerising view from its summit!

While the focus of the trip will be climbing those 3 amazing peaks, there is also a great deal more you will get to see and experience throughout the trip. You will get to enjoy scenic bus rides through the mountain range, hours of hiking, and several stops in some of the most beautiful areas in the entire region. A few examples of where we will be stopping during the trip include Llamacorral (3,760m) and Cashapampa (2,900m). Furthermore, there is an abundance of natural beauty to be found throughout the range as well, from glaciers to crystal blue lakes.

During the trip we will be spending our nights in a variety of hotels and mountain refuges. Thus providing you with a great contrast of city comfort and mountain freedom, as the views you will get from the refuges are truly spectacular.

While climbing Yanapaccha, Pisco and Alpamayo are a huge part of this trip, what really makes this trip a memorable adventure is how immersed in the Cordillera Blanca you will be. This range is special in so many ways. And if you want to experience a number of those ways over 19 days, all you have to do is send me a request.

I also lead a 20 day climbing expedition in the Cordillera Blanca, where you can climb Ishinca, Urus, Tocllaraju and Alpamayo.

Mountain Guide

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.

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.
