Date & PriceThe best month are:
The best season for climbing and trekking in peru is during the Andean Winter (late April to September). The weather in the Cordillera Blanca is among the best found in the entire Andean Range.
Early season conditions will include seasonal snow cover on the glaciers, while later in the season conditions become icy and the wind increases. We’ve found the period of May-August the best. Although storms can occur, long periods of stable, dry weather are prevalent. However, like all big mountains such as Huascaran , Chopicalqui, and others peaks of the Cordillera Blanca generate and attract their own weather making it impossible to predict.
Be prepared for a wide range of temperatures; from freezing nights, to snowy and windy conditions, to bright sunshine intensified by the high altitude.
This wide fluctuation in temperatures makes it important to bring everything on the equipment list. Please call for more details and help with equipment questions you may have while preparing for this adventure.
