Q´ampa it´s an opportunity to experience altitude first-hand and taking your mountaineering skills to new heights while getting to appreciate the inner workings of an andes expedition.
An ideal expedition for climbers with basic technical mountaineering skills. Our accompanying option also allows for non-climbing friends and family to join in on the expedition.
Day 1: Cusco - Pacchanta - Base Camp
Your exciting expedition will start with a trip from Cusco to Pacchanta (3-hours). From Pacchanta (4.250m), you’ll start to trek up to Base Camp (2,5-hours) at an altitude of 5.000m. The walk up is on a well-used path. Once at Base Camp, you’ll need to get your gear ready for the next day, as we have an early start in the morning. You’ll also have time to rest and rehydrate.

The next day, you will begin summit assault (5.587m) in the early hours of the morning. You will arrive just in time for the sunrise and you will begin the entire descent the same day.
