Our Pisco Base Camp and Lake 69 trek is a unique introduction to the Cordillera Blanca Mountain Range offering panoramic mountain views, impressive valleys and beautiful glacial lakes.

The trek is close to the highest mountains of Peru such as the twin peaks of Huascaran being the biggest mountain in Peru and the highest tropical mountain in the world, Chopicalqui, Yanapaccha, Chacraraju and Huandoys.

Accommodation is in Refugio Peru Mountain Hut built by an Italian Organization (Mato Grosso). We strongly recommend that you acclimatize for at least 3 days and 2 nights in Huaraz before the trek departs.

Natural History
The valleys are great places to observe native Andean alpine flora, especially the many wildflowers that bloom during the trekking season, including buttercups, ranunculus, lupines and several species of orchids. Many encrustations of deep-red bromeliads can be seen along the track, sprouting from boulders and on rock faces.
Fauna includes mountain caracaras, falcons, Andean geese and ducks, hawks, hummingbirds, American kestrels, puna ibis, Andean swifts, Andean foxes and mountain vizcachas.
