Day 1: Huaraz – Vallunaraju Moraine Camp

This morning we’ll pick you up at your hotel and drive out to Llaca valley. As we leave the city the scenery quickly changes to beautiful tradtional Andean villages and farmland. We’ll pass through the small towns of Marian and Cachipampa, continue to the entrance of Llaca valley, and eventually reach Base Camp Llaca. We will break for lunch, then continue hiking to the higher Moraine Camp (about 3 hours hiking). Overnight camping (4800m).

Day 2: Moraine Camp – Vallunaraju Summit (5686m) – Vallunaraju Base Camp

Wake up at 3:30AM for a quick breakfast. We’ll plan to break camp by 4:00AM. Its about a 1-hour approach hiking over the rugged morraine until we reach the glacier. We gear up here and begin our ascent. Depending of weather/level of fitness, we expect to reach the summit (5636m) in about 4 hours. We return via the same route back to the base camp. Dinner and camping overnight at (4000m).
