3 DAY PISCO CLIMBING

Offers stunning vistas to the dozens of northern glacial peaks

Nevado Pisco has earned the title of panoramic viewpoint of the northern part of the Cordillera Blanca mountain, one of the easiest mountains in the range to climb and manageable with proper fitness and the necessary acclimatisation. Its current name comes from the first ascension to the summit which was celebrated with the traditional Peruvian drink – Pisco.

Acclimatisation

Recommendations for Best Seasons

All year around. The best time is from mid-April to late September or early October.  April, May and June are the best months for lovers of flowers and green landscape. July through August are the best months for blue sky & also an excellent period for photographers (warm colours and clear blue skies are great!). From September to April you get a mixed sunny and pretty cloudy landscape.

Weather

The entire Cordillera Blanca has a semi-dry and semi-cold climate, with an average maximum temperature of 23.9° C (75.0° F) and a minimum of 1.1° C (33.98° F). The climate is very unpredictable, even in the dry season it can rain. During the days it can vary from hot to very frigid temperatures, included rain and strong winds or snow over 4800 meters above sea level. It usually starts getting cloudy more often in early September. October and November are the months when after 2-3pm you can count on afternoon showers.
