Full description

In this 8 days mountaineering program I propose the ascent of Mt. Sullcon, Vicuñita and Paccha Esquina in the Cordillera Central, an off the beaten track mountain range near Lima, less known but as beautiful as Cordillera Blanca or Huayhuash range.

The mountains of Cordillera Central and the Nor Yauyos Cochas Reserve are unique, with plenty of lakes full of trouts and a historic Inca Trail that goes through the southern part of the range. The easiest access route is from Lima, the capital city of Peru, travelling 150 km to the east.

The Cordillera Central, overshadowed by Cordillera Blanca, Huayhuash and Vilcanota, has over 200 peaks between 5000m and 5500m, some of them with beautiful glaciers. This is the place to go if you want to avoid the crowds. You’ll see much less people, camps and trails than in the other ranges in Peru. In la Cordillera Central you’ll be able to explore places that only a few visited before.
