PERU - ICE CLIMBING IN HUARAZ
The summits of Cordillera Blanca constitute one of the most attractive targets for climbers world over. Ice climbing is popular here due to the ease of access which allows doing various climbs and coming back to the town of Huaraz to rest between climbs. The climbs range from short climbs of a few hours to unexplored vertical faces of rock and ice, little frequented by climbers. Ice climbing activity is one of the most important tourist activity, but has some important requirements. Since Peru is one of the best well-known countries in the world for alpinism, it's necessary to make known these requirements for safe climbing.
PERU - ADVENTURE TOURISM
Not only Huaylas Valley, but all Peru offers opportunities for adventure tourism through its various regions and ecosystems. The traveler will explore a great variety of landsapes, climate, flora and fauna. With adequate equipment, various activies are possible, such as: trekking, ice climbing, canoeing, horse riding, as well as exploration of arqueology and botanics. The main purpose of the activities we propose is to learn ro respect nature, to awaken the curiosity and the desire to learn about nature and the surrounding landscape. Treeking in the Andes is also a cultural experience. The traveler meets Andean communities up to 4,000m, following old Inca roads that connect all thre regions. Camping under the stars in the Andes is a fascinating experience, one can observe the Southern cross and other constellations such as Centaurus, Capricorn among others.
Unfortunately, trails in the Andes are not well markes, and for this we suggest using our services “ENRIQUE EXPEDITION TOURS”, to ensure safety, and to be able to enjoy the views of the beautiful Cordillera Blanca. We's like to remind you a few considerations. During the treks it is forbidden to pick any wild flowers, or take any fauna. Trash (eg plastic, metal cans) will be carried back to the town by all trekkers. Guides and porters from our agency will dig pits for bathrooms, and will cover it after camping is finished. We chose flat surfaces for camping, usually next to a water source. We will also watch for your gear, that will be safely guarded inside the dining tent.
