WHO WE ARE
We’re coming to Huaraz, and we want to climb/trek – can we join one of your groups?
It cannot be done, as we don’t sell space on climbing or trekking trips. There are plenty of local agencies that sell space, but we aren’t one of them. We arrange custom logistics for groups of any size, but they’re all private trips.
We don’t want to haul our mountaineering/trekking equipment to Peru – is there good quality rental equipment available in town?
At La Cima Logistics, you can rent the very highest quality equipment for your adventures. We have excellent tents for trekking, mountaineering, and basecamp, sleeping bags and pads, kitchen equipment, and technical climbing kit. We also have access to emergency communications equipment such as satellite phones, as well as water filtration tools, and first aid/portable oxygen.
Do I need to hire a Guide?
Legally, in many cases the answer is yes. In some cases this rule can be bent, but it should be understood by visiting trekkers and climbers that the Peruvian Gov’t has decided that you must hire a Guide for trekking or climbing trips in the Cordillera Blanca (Huascaran Nat’l Park) In the Huayhaush, there are no such regulations. If you think you might want to hire a Guide – do so as EARLY in the year as possible.
Can La Cima Logistics make all of our arrangements?
We can arrange as little or as much as you require. We have access to the best staff working in this area – many Guides speak multiple languages and some have wilderness medical response training, as well as plenty of experience in the hills. The Cooks we work with are second to none, and can accommodate different dietary needs and preferences. Porters and Arrieros (pack animal handlers) can help move equipment if needed. Any kind of transportation, hotel or equipment requests can be arranged.
What can we do near Huaraz?
Many fun things! The mountain areas of Parque Nacional Huascaran, located in the Cordillera Blanca, and the nearby Cordillera Huayhuash, attract many international mountaineers and trekkers. Climbing and trekking options are plentiful, from moderate to difficult/expert, and similar possibilities are rarely so close at hand. Ski mountaineering, technical mountain biking, rock-climbing (bolt-clipping and “trad”/alpine) are also popular reasons to visit. Cultural tourism, including community-based “homestays”, guided visits to pre-Incan ruins, and supported trekking on historically significant trails are gaining in popularity. High altitude horse riding, trout fishing, bird watching, and guided day hikes are some of the activities that have become popular while people acclimatize to the altitude. Because we know the area, and the options, let us help you make the most of your trip!
