Explore the Highest Tropical Mountain Range in the World

Repertory Trip: Next Offered July 22-August 7, 2016 & June 9-25, 2018 & July 27-August 12, 2018

Overview

The enormous ice-fluted peaks, surreal turquoise tarns, and flowering alpine meadows of Peru’s Cordillera Blanca make it a phenomenal arena for trekking. In this stunning glacial wilderness, more than 70 summits top 18,000 feet, including mighty Huascarán (22,204'), Peru’s highest peak, and Alpamayo (19,506'), a classic pyramid that has been called the most beautiful mountain in the world. Our 11-day trek is a challenging one, but well rewarded with exhilarating days on the trail, spectacular campsites beside impossibly blue lakes, and views of ice-draped summits and glaciers at every turn. An optional climb of Nevado Pisco (18,871'), set right in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca, grants us dazzling 360-degree views of countless snow-capped peaks.
