Vallunaraju is a very popular summit to peak in the Cordillera Blanca. Vallunaraju is located in the central part of Cordillera Blanca, it is the nearest mountain to go climbing starting from the city of Huaraz and it is considered a moderate climb. The day you’ll go to the summit you will have an amazing view of many peaks around, all the city and the Cordillera Negra.
To climb this peak it’s not necessary to have any previous experience. However it is a moderately difficult climb and you will need a couple of day hikes in Huaraz to acclimatize; this is only in case if you are a newcomer to mountain terrain at altitude.
