I have put together a trek to Cordillera Blanca. One of the most beautiful places on Earth.
This will be a 3 week trek including travel time from home. Those that want will be attempting to summit 3 peaks above 18,000 feet. The cost should be under $5,000 excluding air travel. It could even fall below $4,000 and come nearer to $3,000 depending on the number of people coming.
Our guide, Nathan Heald, is a very experienced American who puts safety first always. He is amazing. Previous technical climbing skills preferred.
This trek will occur between July 10 and August 10. This promises to be a trip of a lifetime.
Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.
See below for the projected itinerary and to look at Nate’s website.
Ischinca (5,530m), Tocllaraju (6,034m) and Chopicalqui (6,354m) are some of the easier climbs in the cordillera blanca for their respective heights. You do not need technical experience for these. Chopicalqui would be the most technical, but after the other two climbs first, you would be ready.
The price will depend on how many participants there are, but if it is only you the prices are more or less:
Ischinca + Tocllaraju (7days): $1,750
Chopicalqui (4days): $1,800
Plus my travel expenses: $450
If there are more people, then the price for the mountains drop per person.
For example Chopicalqui would be $1,300 each for 2 people.
I think a good itinerary is:
Day1: Arrive to Lima, Take Bus to Huaraz
Day2-5: Acclimate in Huaraz
Day6-12: Ischinca +Tocllaraju
Day13-15: Rest in Huaraz
Day 16-19: Chopicalqui
Day 20: Departure
