MOUNT MATEO at 5,150 meters, (16,892 feet) is probably one of the easiest summit to climbing and one of the best preparation for climbing expeditions before attempting to climb higher summits in the Cordillera Blanca, this summit is a fairly straight forward climb, without exposing the climber to difficult and technical climbing, thus allowing beginners with the opportunity to be exposed to a great experience, ideal for acclimatization. To participate on this adventure you need to have good physical condition and need to be well acclimatized to the altitude, this spectacular peak provides awesome mountain views more than dozen peaks around it, where the enjoyment is unique view of main summits as: Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Chacraraju, Contrahiervas, Ulta, Hualcan, & the most famous summit in the world (mount alpamayo).

Superb trips in cordillera Blanca
I made two trips with Andes Adventure Holidays. The first was rock climbing in Los Olivos, and the second one was mountaineering in Monte Mateo. Both were fantastic, as was the guide (also the owner), Freddy. I learned new skills and was able to challenge myself, while feeling safe and secure all the time. For both trips, the equipment was of high quality. I highly recommend this company.
