Qampa Hiking & Climbing


What comes to mind when you hear the word “mountaineering?” Perhaps you picture climbers roped together in single file making their way to the summit of a big mountain Cusco has a lot of snow mountains where we have chance to climb it.

Qampa, also spelled Campa and Qampa, is the easiest, most popular mountain in Cusco and may be climbed without experience in mountaineering. It requires a glacier hike and sometimes a small rock climbing pass depending on the season. The summit offers a panoramic view that reaches to Salkantay over 200km to the NW.

From there we take a taxi to the herding community of Pacchanta (4236m) and is there where we will start our hinkingtowars base Camp (4900m) with our arriero carrying the equipment on a horse. The trail (9km) passes through several green-blue lagoons at the foot of Nevado Ausangate and arrives at base camp close to the Qampa Pass (5100m).
