Overview

The Cordillera Blanca is home to some of the most stunning peaks in all of the Andes. Arriving in the Ishinca Valley, climbers are met with a sense of amazement and a 360-degree view of a vast range that inspires the heart.

We will trek into our base camp and have access to a variety of nearby peaks. The goal of the trip is to develop high-altitude mountaineering skills or refine the skills you already possess.

The Ishinca Valley is located just outside of Huaraz, and is an excellent location to climb a variety of peaks. This trip will ascend a variety of climbs that are great for beginning high altitude climbers wanting to gain high altitude climbing experience.

The short approach provides for a maximum amount of time to acclimate and learn glacier, snow and ice climbing skills.

The Ishinca valley provides several option for acclimatization climbing Urus 5,495m, Ishinca 5,560m.and Tocllaraju 6,034m. three peaks from the same base camp .

This trip will test your abilities, but you will be rewarded with unmatched panoramas and the confidence you gain will serve you well on future big mountain adventures.

    Hi there. I’m very interested in booking this trip. I’m a bit of a beginner when it comes to trekking and I’ve never used this website before, but I’m in decent physical shape and I’d love to do something like this. Could I get some more information please?

    • Hi Pinchas,

      Alex here from TrekkingPartners. Glad to hear you’re interested in doing something a little more adventurous. I’d be happy to help answer any questions you may have about this trek. Are there any specific questions you have or are you just looking for more info?

      In the meantime, I’ll contact the guide and get a more detailed itinerary for this trip sent your way.

      (So you know, we (TrekkingPartners) help connect you with a reliable local guide, like Rodolfo. Rodolfo, who works for a local agency in Peru, would take over management of your trip once you book…)
