Tour Details

Tocllaraju snowy mountain is located in the Chinchey massif of the Cordillera Blanca, its aesthetic pyramidal aspect is imposing within the Ishinca Gorge, this peak is a classic six thousand of mountaineering in the peruvian andes.

Tocllaraju is an excellent challenge for mountaineers seeking the experience of climbing their first six thousand in the Cordillera Blanca, however reaching its summit is not easy because you must overcome wide and deep crevasses, the dense fog that sometimes settles on the mountain, the strong wind that hits during the climb to the northwest ridge and the challenge of the final climb through the somital ice fungi.

Participants must be in excellent physical condition to join this climb. Andean Raju Expeditions recommends previous and constant preparation as a crucial factor to take on this challenge, then, the physical stress caused by the days of climbing will be minimized.

We strongly advise all participants to have an adequate training plan in gyms, outdoor sports, climbing peaks, bearing weight and long day hikes.

If you would like our advice, we can provide you a training plan after evaluation of your experience in hiking and sporting activity.
