Trek & Climb: Mt Qampa & Percocaya Training

The snow-capped nevado Qampa (5,550m) is one of the mountains of the Vilcanota mountain range; it’s located to the Southeast of the City of Cusco, in the province of Quisipicanchis—a great introductory climb for those without experience in glacial climbs.

Leaving from Cusco; in private transportation early in the morning, we’ll drive 3 hours south to the Ausangate region. Following our arrival we’ll take our time to check all of our equipment for the climb. We’ll meet up with our arrieros and their mules; the arrieros loading all of our equipment onto them before setting off on this epic 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 with limited 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 Percocaya (5,230m) is an intermediate level mountain with some steep 65° ice walls to climb before summiting. It is an excellent challenge for those looking to improve their climbing ability 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.

The Ausangate region is a great place; I found everything I was looking for. I trekked to the mirador of Condors (4990m) & summited Nevado Qampa (5500m), overall, a very good expedition.
