PERU ADVENTURE

 

PERU MOUNTAINEERING

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

After the Himalayas, the Andes are the highest mountains in the world. One of those mountains is Mount Huascarán, located in the White Range, which happens to be the highest mountain found anywhere in the tropics. Along with this record breaking mountain are dozens of others that surpass 5,000 masl (16,400 fasl). The Peruvian Andes feature mountains of different technical diffi culty levels – from high to medium to easy – as well as the chance to make fi rst assaults and to open new climbing routes.
The Peruvian Andes provide an incomparable spot for mountaineering and make Peru a magnet for lovers of South American mountains. There are many reasons: a unique concentration of mountains and relatively few mountain climbers; mild weather almost all year-long, and relatively easy access to sites that are nevertheless cut off from hectic city life. It is an ideal combination that makes Peru one of the most attractive destinations for mountaineers worldwide.

Although the lowest summit of the Huascarán massif, the world's highest tropical mountain, was first climbed in 1 908 by US climbers Annie Peck and two Swiss guides, mountain climbing in the Andes only took off in Peru in the early 1 930s thanks to the pioneering European expeditions that launched the great Andean travel adventure in search of new climbing challenges.

Since the 1 932 expedition led by Austrian climbers Borchers, Schneider and Kinzl reached the southern summit of Mount Huascarán (6 768 masl) -Peru's highest-, Peru's peaks have been the scene of many more spectacular ascents
