Pisco ascension

Ascension of Pisco and Yanapaccha in Peru

Same page in french: l’ascension du Yanapaccha

We were seeking to create a trip that combined cultural and mountain discovery. In addition, we wanted a trip for people with little or no previous mountain experience. The trip has been structured to allow us to visit several tourist sites in the city of Huaraz. At the same time, the activities allow us to acclimatize slowly while bathing in the Peruvian culture.

We decided to « not push» ourselves in order to take the necessary time that our body needs to adjusts as much as possible in this high-mountain environment which is a good thing if we want to enjoy the experience at its maximum.  You will see that daily hikes are relatively short. This leaves us time to rest and enjoy the views until the ascent where we will push our limits a little further because, after all, it’s still an adventure trip.
