A great trek and climb plan for trekkers who’d like to get into the discipline of mountain climbing. Trek a topographically interesting mountain route in the first days of your adventure. On the last day climb one of the best introductory mountains in the range to enjoy immense views and revel in your achievements!
Leaving from Cusco; in private transportation early in the morning, you’ll travel 3 hours south to the Ausangate region. Following our arrival; taking the time to check all of our equipment for the climb. You’ll meet up with our arrieros and their mules; the arrieros loading all of our equipment before setting off on this epic Southern Peru adventure.
Nevado Qampa (pronounced Jampa, also spelled Campa), is the easiest; and one of the most popular mountains in Cusco and may be climbed without experience in mountaineering. It requires a glacier hike and sometimes a small rock climbing pass depending on the season. Afterwards, on your arrival at the summit the effort offers you an incredible panoramic view; that reaches to Salkantay over 200km in a north western direction.
Nevado del Inka is an introductory level mountain with some relatively steep gradient icewalls (55°) to climb before summiting. It is still an excellent mountain for those looking for their first ascents in mountaineering.
Afterall it is a majestic landscape where you can observe cultural diversity; along with biological diversity of the high Andean areas such as; Vicuña, Vizcacha, Andean fox, Andean face, Andean carpenter and other native species.
