Mountain Climbing : Mount Alpamayo
07 Days / 06 Nights

Alpamayo is a steep, perfectly shaped pyramid of ice, one of many fine peaks that comprise the Santa Cruz massif, the northernmost massif of the Cordillera Blanca. Alpamayo is smaller than many of its neighboring peaks, but overcomes this shortcoming by its breathtaking form. It actually has two sharp summits, North and South, separated by a narrow corniced ridge.
