Peru: Climbing Nevado Pisco (Western 5752 m)
About Nevado Pisco: This is a very appealing mountain and a good option for climbers for acclimatization. Previous experience in mountaineering is not required, though you should be in good physical condition. At the summit (5752 m), you are rewarded with magnificent views of the Cordillera Blanca (White Range), including the 4 peaks of the Huandoys, Alpamayo, Artesonraju and Chopicalqui. You’ll also be able to see North and South Huascaran, the highest mountain in Peru, at 6,768 meters.
Getting to Quebrada Llanganuco: The starting point to climb is located in Quebrada Llanganuco (Llanganuco Valley), the most spectacular valley in the Cordillera Blanca.
From Huaraz take a "colectivo" (public bus) to the town of Yungay (1 hour) or otherwise arrange a private transportation, if you are in a group.
In Yungay ask for another shuttle to Pisco base camp in Llanganuco valley (Quebrada Llanganuco). There are two lagoons in Llanganuco: Laguna Chinancocha and Laguna Orconcoha. When you bargain with the driver make it clear that you want to go to the Pisco Base Camp, located at the first hairpin-curve at 77km., called "La Curva" or (Cebollapampa), lying 5 km. beyond the second lagoon (tourist buses usually only go to the first lake!). On the way you will stop at the park entrance gate, where you will pay the entrance fee.
