Alpamayo Tours

Set high in the peaks of the Peruvian Andes, Alpamayo is regarded by climbers as the most beautiful mountain in the world. Topping out at 19,500 ft. (5,909m) above sea level, Alpamayo is a serious climb for fit and experienced alpinists—but also enough of a straightforward climb that athletic travelers that hire a guide have a chance of reaching the summit.

Climbing the mountain can take 8-10 days depending on fitness and conditions, but if you don’t feel the need to reach the summit but still want to experience the beauty, you can book an 11-day circuit trek that encircles Alpamayo’s base. In a country with such a wealth of treks, this circuit can arguably compete with some of the best hiking trips in Peru, where views look out at the tallest tropical mountains found anywhere in the world, and explores the heart of a Quechua culture that still thrives up here in these hills.

Practical Info

Most tours of Alpamayo begin from Huaraz. Be sure to pack plenty of winter clothing, worn in boots, and a rain jacket, and the best season for trekking is between June and September when the weather is dry but cold. You’ll want to spend a couple of days in Huaraz to acclimate to the altitude.

Did You Know? The total distance for the Alpamayo Circuit is a little over 60 miles.
