If climbing to you means always wanting to get better, push harder, go higher – then climbing Huascaran in Peru is a must. By summiting the highest peak of the Cordillera Blanca, you will be able to take in views of the Peruvian range that very few people can gloat about. Alongside the stunning landscapes trekked across in preparation for Huascaran, this expedition will make for an unforgettable adventure.
Just as for Alpamayo, summiting Huascaran should be attempted only by acclimatized and experienced alpine climbers. In addition to adequate equipment, make sure that your travel insurance covers climbing and trekking over 3000m of altitude; and if you are summiting without a guide, make sure to have the necessary written permissions from park officials. Finally, changing climate conditions mean that the path to the top of Huascaran is constantly changing – check with local guides beforehand for the best present route to ensure your safety.
