For those with only limited time or no previous experience of the high mountains, this short and easy trip will give you your first taste of the Cordillera Blanca. We walk up the Santa Cruz Valley towards Alpamayo Base Camp. On the third day, we go over the Punta Unión Pass (4 760 m) at the foot of the breathtaking Nevado Taulliraju. Then we head down towards the village of Colcabamba, nestled on the eastern slopes of the Cordillera Blanca.
As a fitting end to this trip, we climb the Nevado Pisco (5 752 m), which allows you to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Cordillera Blanca.
