Climbing Vallunaraju & Pisco Mountain 06 Days

Vallunaraju is located in the northern part of the Ranrapalca Glacier, in the Cordillera Blanca. It can be seen from the city of Huaraz and has an icy climate. Its name is Quechuan, meaning Peak of dreams and has spectacular views of the Cordillera Blanca. It is a mountaineers´ favourite mountain because of its relatively easy access and is also a good way to acclimatize.

Nevado Pisco
Duration: 3 day
Pisco mountain lies in Cordillera Blanca and forms a part of a mountain range called Macizo de Huandoy. It lies in the central part of Cordillera Blanca, in Yunghay province.
