Huascaran ascent, Peru’s giant

Lire ce voyage en français 

When we had the idea to develop a new trip, Huascaran, the giant of Peru imposed itself! The highest mountain of Peru, the 5th of all the Americas, and especially it is not just a hike in high-altitude, but a journey where you will have to cross several crevasses. Acclimation and speed are the key of success on this mountain.

Therefore, we will acclimate ourselves at the Vallunaraju previous to the ascension in order to attain the summit. The peak is not our main goal but we will try to reach it if we have the opportunity.  Discover the Peruvian culture remains a must. Returning from the mountain, prior to departure, we will spend a few days in Huaraz to enjoy the city.
