Climbing the Nevado Mateo (5150 m)

You are here:

Highlights of the Cordillera Blanca. The highest tropical mountain range in the world, the Cordillera Blanca is part of the spectacular Andes that form the spine of South America. A mecca for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, the region boasts over 50 peaks that exceed 15,000 feet, 700 glaciers and 300 lakes.

Let’s climb the Nevado Mateo in just one day. It is one of the amazing ice-capped peaks of the famous Cordillera Blanca. The total altitude of the Nevado Mateo is 5150 meters and its ascent is considered technically easy. That way, it can perfectly work as your first climbing experience since you won’t need any technical skill.

However keep in mind that, like in any mountaineering ascent, the climb implies some risks which should not be taken lightly. That is why it is always mandatory, especially for beginners, to do it with a certified mountain guide. I can therefore guarantee that you will enjoy this experience safely.

For better acclimatization and performance in the ascent, we will start the trip with a tour to the Nevado Pastoruri. On the way back, after reaching the top of the Nevado Mateo, we will visit the Cancaraca Lagoon, crossing the Punta Olímpica tunnel. Finally, we will taste a delicious ice cream in Carhuaz.

This one-day ascent can be also a preparation for bigger goals in the area. For example, this 3-day trek in the Quilcayhuanca Valley that I am leading.
