ITENERARY

DAY 1: HUARAZ – CEBOLLAPAMPA – YANAPACCHA’S MORRAINE CAMP

Drive from Huaraz to Cebollapampa 3850m, passing by the famous twin lakes of Llanganuco and then continue up to a hairpin bend in the road called the “Curva” at 4580m. From here we hike to Yanapaccha Morena Camp for about 3 to 3 ½ hours until we reach the campsite. (5000m)

DAY 2: YANAPACCHA’S MORRAINE CAMP- SUMMIT – RETURN TO HUARAZ

The initial ascent onto the glacier is usually a short steep ice climb & then there is more gentle terrain on the glacier We negotiate crevasse fields to arrive at the west face of Yanapaccha which we climb to the summit. The last 200m to reach the summit is steep 65 deg. About 3 to 4 rappels are required during the descent. Return back to Morena Camp & then walk back the same path back to the road where our private vehicle will be waiting for us (10 to 11 hours for the day) and we return back to Huaraz

* Optional Day 3: Stay for a relaxing extra day and either visit the beautiful Laguna 69 or descend on a good path to camp a night near the famous Llanganuco Lakes before returning to Huaraz
