Travel offer: Santa Cruz Trek with ascent of Pisco
Description: Our journey starts and ends in Lima. A private transfer brings you from the airport to the hotel in Lima and next morning to the Bus terminal. From there, you board a First class coach for your travel to Huaraz, where we will meet you and bring you to your hotel. For the next day, we plan an acclimatisation trip to the the turquoise waters of the lagoon Cheurup (4500 meters); in the afternoon we return to Huaraz.
On day 3 the trip along Santa Cruz creek starts – with meeting with our porters and donkeys. We trek for five hours to reach our camp and spending our first night in the lagoon area called Ichiccocha. The next days follow the creek – at the foot of Alpamayo and Artesonraju and continue to reach our first major pass called Punta Union (4750 meters). On the other side we start the descent, spending one night along the way before reaching base camp. On the seventh day, we start the ascent to Pisco moraine camp (4900 meters), and on the next day, we try to reach the summit with fantastic views. We return to Base camp and next day to Huaraz, where we will enjoy a little celebration of our ascent and trek. On the last day, we take the bus back to Lima.
