Your Chance To Edit

Nevado Pisco is a very appealing mountain and a good option for climbers for acclimatization. Previous experience in mountaineering is not required, though you should be in good physical condition. At the summit you are rewarded with magnificent views over the all Cordillera Blanca - the beautiful Huandoys, the impressive Chacraraju (to the east), Pirámide de Garcilaso, Artesonraju and Alpamayo (to the north) and Nevado Huascarán to the south.
