Full description

Trekking Huayhuash Climb Diablo Mudo (5350 m) & Expedition NevadoTocllaraju (6034 m). One of the most beautiful treks in the world.

The Cordillera Huayhuash (Huayhuash Range): The Huayhuash Range is the second highest tropical mountain chain in the world, after the Cordillera Blanca (White Range), immediately to the north. Even though it is located 120 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, the crest forms part of the Continental Divide of South America; the waters of the eastern slope flow to the Marañon River, a principal tributary of the Amazon.

Running from north to south, the main zone has some twenty summits within about 25 km, with a secondary mountain change of summits of lower elevation toward the west that is about 15 km long. Six of the peaks are higher than 6,000 meters. Among the peaks, Yerupajá (6,617 m) stands out - it is the second highest mountain in Peru (after Huascarán, at 6,768 m.) Also of note is Siula Grande (6,344 m), which achieved fame through the book and subsequent film “Tocando el Vacio“ (Touching the Void) by mountaineer Joe Simpson.

This area also hosts dozens of glacial lakes of incomparable beauty. The closest towns are Chiquián (3,400 m) and Cajatambo (3,375 m)

About the Ishinca Valley: We will hike through a beautiful valley of the Cordillera Blanca, which includes the best attractions of the central Andes in Peru. In our expedition to the Ishinca Valley, we will climb three mountains, which, while close to one another, possess different characteristics from the perspective of technique and aesthetics. Urus Peak (5,420 m) is the lowest of the three and will permit us to get well acclimatized to confront the coming challenges. It is also the rockiest of the three peaks, and to climb it we must hike first over slopes of ice and snow. Ishinca Peak (5,540 m) will be our next challenge: from our base camp, we set out on the trail to the summit to enjoy one of the best views of the entire valley and its surroundings. Tocllaraju (6,034 m) is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Cordillera Blanca. This incredible frozen pyramid shows us the true extent of the mountains of Peru.

Winding trails lead us past several wild foaming waterfalls to the lake. Laguna 69 is flanked by glacial moraines. Immediately above the deep blue surface of the lake, we see the steep ice walls of Chacraraju, one of the most beautiful, but also most difficult of the 6000 peaks in the Cordillera Blanca.
