Huaraz

Located in the department of Ancash, the Cordillera Blanca, held to be the Peruvian mountain climbing capital, rears up on the eastern flank of the Santa River Valley, in the Callejon de Huaylas valley. The mountain chain features the largest number of spectacularly beautiful peaks in the country.

The best-known include: Mount Huascaran (6,768 masl); Huandoy, with three peaks, all over 6,000 meters; Chopicalqui (6,354 meters); Chacraraju (6,112 meters); Alpamayo (5,947 meters) and Copa (6,118 meters).

Some of the advantages of this mountainous area include the climate (the ideal time for climbing is between May and October) and access to its mountains, which give climbers the chance to tackle several summits within a short space of time.
