Alpamayo and Huascaran

The Cordillera Blanca is the highest mountain range in the Peruvian Andes and the highest tropical Cordillera in the world. The region's relatively easy access, excellent climate and friendly people make it perfect for climbing, and this challenging adventures provides some of the most spectacular opportunities that the Andes have to offer you. We have joined the ascent of the popular Alpamayo peak( 5947m) with Huascaran (6768m), Peru's highest mountain.

You'll have the unique occasion to climb two of the most selected peaks in the Cordillera Blanca in just one challenging expedition. We approach the extraordinary pyramid of Alpamayo from the village of Cashapampa, and make our base camp in the Santa Cruz valley. The Santa Cruz valley is perhaps one of the most beautiful valley in the Cordillera Blanca.
