Mountain Climbing Courses

For us at Peru Expeditions Tours, the mountains are a way of life. Taking small steps to reach the top of your dreams. But to get there you have to be prepared. We want to share our knowledge to improve your ability to lead climbs on your own.

Our entry level climbing course is perfect for you to learn basic mountaineering skills and gain confidence in glacial terrain. You will be taught many mountaineering & Andinismo concepts, such as progression on snow and ice with crampons/axes, route finding, glacier ropes travel, crevasse rescue. You will develop the skills and confidence to successfully go to the mountains and be an integral part of a team.

If you are looking to go to the next level, on steeper mountains, we can make your advanced course a custom or custom mountain! In the Huaraz region, the Cordillera Blanca is the best place to have a higher level. The High Mountain School itself is in Huaraz (Centro De Estudios de Alta Montaña), where certified guides recognized by the UIAGM are trained.
