Peru Climb Mount Pisco 3 Days


Mount Pisco is named after the typical Peruvian drink, Pisco. This beautiful mountain offers a great introduction to the high mountain climbing experience on the Cordillera Blanca. Located in the heart of the mountain range, is an excellent choice as a preparatory climb before confronting higher, more demanding peaks of the Cordillera Blanca.


Day 1: Huaraz – Base Camp.
In the morning we arrange a private transport to Cebollapampa high plain. From here we trek towards the base camp of Mounts Pisco and Huandoy. The trail leads us along beautiful landscapes with a well-marked route with glacial streams, gracious Andean flowers and queñua (polylepis) forests while we can enjoy great views of Mounts Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Yanacocha and the Pisco itself. The 4 hours hike will take us to the camp at 4650m. From here we have exceptional views of Mounts Huandoy, Chopicalqui and Pisco. Lunch Box, Dinner.

PISCO-CLIMB-2Day 2: Base Camp – Pisco Summit – Base Camp.
We start our attempt to reach the summit of Mount Pisco early in the morning at about 2 a.m. First we have to negotiate our way through a camp of loose rocks of the moraine and then at sunrise we will reach the base of the glacier where we put crampons on and start the climb in easy glacial and snowy terrain. At a certain point of the route and weather permitting we will have the opportunity to enjoy marvelous views of the Artesonraju snowy peak, Mount Caraz, Piramide de Garcilaso and other impressive and beautiful mountains of the east side of the Cordillera Blanca. Finally after 7-8 hours of continuous climbing we will get to the summit of the Pisco Mountain. Our effort will be rewarded with an incredible 360 degrees view of the Cordillera Blanca main peaks: Huascaran, Chacraraju, Chopicalqui, Huandoy, Alpamayo, Artesonraju, etc. etc. Then we return to base camp where we expect to arrive at about 2 – 3 p.m. for a well-deserved rest and dinner. Breakfast, Lunch Box, Dinner.

Day 3: Base Camp – Cebollapampa - Huaraz.
