HIGHLIGHTS
  • Climb Mount Pisco, preferred by beginners wanting to hone their mountaineering skills
  • Try your newly acquired skills in Mount Chopicalqui
  • See the majestic mountains of the Peruvian Andes
Join us on this seven-day trek and climb Mount Pisco as well as Mount Chopicalqui, two of the highest mountains in the Cordillera Blanca in the Peruvian Andes. Popular among more seasoned climbers heading out to conquer higher peaks in the Cordillera, these peaks, nonetheless, provide excellent opportunities for those starting out in the field to test their skills and a unique experience for those just wanting to give climbing a try.

Mount Pisco, at 5,750 m, is one of the easiest mountains to scale in the Cordillera Blanca and is widely preferred as a break-in route for acclimatisation by climbers before moving onto one of the higher peaks. At the summit, you are rewarded with magnificent views of the Cordillera Blanca as well as North and South Huascaran, the highest mountain in Peru, at 6,768 m.

Mount Chopicalqui, part of the Huascaran Massif, is also located in the Cordillera Blanca. With an elevation of 6,345 m, it is the fifth highest mountain in the department (administrative region) of Ancash, and the fourth highest in the Cordillera Blanca. It is a demanding mountain that requires some technical climbing and previous climbing experience.

Starting from Huaraz, this trip will take you to the top of Mount Pisco on Day 2. You will hit the trail for Mount Chopicalqui next, trekking past its base camp and moraine camp to reach the top. Retrace your steps back to the base camp upon conquering Mount Chopicalqui arriving in Huaraz at around 5:00 pm on the last day of the tour.

“This wasn’t just your average planned trip, I was in a bind for a last minute trip, looking online I discovered Unu Raymi Expeditions. James was the best trip planner I could ask for, he was very accommodating to my needs, even helped me out when I got to Cusco & put me up for a couple of nights. He organised & operated my 2 day Lares Valley trek, trip to machu picchu, day tour to salt mines, moray and sacred valley! His team are very professional and handle everyone to their needs and wants in treks and tours around peru! I had met James personally as I was travelling alone, he’s a great planner as well now a great friend! I plan on returning soon and meeting up again with James!”

“James did an awesome job. Due to bad weather conditions, we had to change to a different route and he met all my needs. The Choquequirao Trek was beautiful, my guide Noé was fit, knowledgeable and always in a good mood. The equipment was brand new and well suited for the trek. I was able to get a special diet during the trek and the food tasted very good. The cook and horseman worked really hard! I thank James for this five star experience in the Andes!”
