Best tour company in all of peru!!!

We were in Peru for almost two months and they were by far the best service givers that we have experienced! They are very honest

Vallunaraju was hard work but so rewarding, the view from the top was really worth it!
I will remember my experience forever. Now I just want to attempt another summit!
Thank you Akilpo for your such an amazing thing and for giving me the best guide ever!

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.

Nevado Pisco or Mataraju belongs to the Huandoy massif and is characterised by two elevated peaks. East Pisco (5,760m) is the highest, and West Pisco (5,752 m) is one of the best known and most ascended of the paeks in the Cordillera Blanca. Its current name comes from the first ascension to the summit which was held with the typical drink of Peru, Pisco.

LOCATION:Situated in the northern part of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, between Paron & Llanganuco sector of Huascaran National Park.   83.1 km far from Huaraz. Pisco belongs to the glacier massif of Huandoy.

MORE ABOUT HUARAZ

HUARAZ (population: 100,000) is the capital of the Ancash Region in the northern Callejón de Huaylas valley. The eastern skyline of the city is dominated by the impressive snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, much of which is in the Huascarán National Park. One of the landmarks is Perú’s tallest mountain, Huascarán towering up at 6,768m.

At an average altitude of 3,000 – 3,100m altitude, Huaraz is also the base for most of the mountain activities like trekking and climbing in the Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash.

Cuy (guinea pig) is one of the regional specialities although you’ll also find many cebicherías (fish and seafood). Being a base for many tourists, quite a variety of restaurants and bars have sprung up everywhere. Feel free to ask us about what’s the latest/trendiest spots.

TRAVEL TO/FROM HUARAZ

By Road:  Several bus companies serve the route between Lima and Huaraz as well as between Chimbote and Huaraz. Travelling from the south of Perú, connect with a bus service from Lima (about 8 hours). From the north, the best is to connect with a bus service from Chimbote (about 4-5 hours)

By Air:  Daily flights from Lima to Huaraz/Huaraz to Lima are now available. Keep in mind that there are luggage restrictions with 15kg limit per passenger and 5kg hand luggage. The flight is about 50 minutes and a taxi (about S/25 – $8.00) can then get you to Huaraz city, more or less a 20 minute ride. For further information visit the airline site at LC Peru

GETTING AROUND HUARAZ

A range of transport options are available within Huaraz and also for getting to and from the outlying areas and villages.  The most obvious are the little ‘moto’s’ that will take you anywhere (in the day) for S/1.50 (about $0.40 – 0.50). Taxis (cars) are generally in the region of S/3-4 (about $1-1.20). Commonly used by most residents in Huaraz are the different collectivos, cars and minibuses – these are also the cheapest and will pretty much get you anywhere you want to get to.
