6-7 DAYS

Mount Huascaran


Duration 6-7 days
Difficulty Technical
Range of Altitude 3,090m to 6,768m / 10,138ft to 22,205ft
Distance Covered

Towering at 6,768m, Mount Huascaran is the highest mountain in Peru. Given the high altitudes, it is essential for climbers to be in excellent physical shape with previous climbing experience and well-acclimatized to the environment.

We would recommend completing at least four days of acclimatization treks as well as an acclimatization-climb of easy to moderate difficulty (e.g. Mount Vallunaraju, Mount Urus, Mount Ishinca or Mount Pisco) as warm-up in preparation for the climb.

You can choose to include an extra day to buffer for additional rest or inclement weather.

  • Some parts are quite steep and technical, so careful climbing is required
  • Total hiking time is approximately four to five hours
