Pisco Expedition introduces you to perhaps the best beginner mountain in the world.  Mount Pisco at 5,752 meters, (18,897 feet), is known as a great preparation peak and a very good way for trekkers, backpackers and other outdoor enthusiast to get their first mountain experience.    Mount Pisco, while beautiful, is a fairly straight forward climb, without exposing the climber to difficult and technical climbing, thus allowing novice climbers with the opportunity to experience a big beautiful mountain. With several other taller more technical peaks close by such as Chopicalqui and Huascaran, Pisco is commonly used as a preparation and acclimation climb for larger nearby peaks in the Cordillera Blanca or Cordillera Huayhuash.  We have both fixed departures and personal trips available.

Our basic schedule adds an extra acclimatization day to this trip.  We have found that this greatly increases the chance of obtaining the summit and further helps with acclimation if clients are also moving on to larger peaks after Pisco.
