YANAPACCHA CLIMBING





OVERVIEW

MOUNT YANAPACCHA at 5,460 meters, (17,908 feet) it’s one of the best preparation climbing expeditions before attempting to climb higher mountains in the Cordillera Blanca or Cordillera Huayhuash. Mount yanapaccha is located ahead of LLanganuco valley, neighbor of mount pisco & chopicalqui, it would certainly attract all the attention for a good acclimatization peak. However Yanapaccha is only slightly lower than Pisco but moderately harder to climb. The view from it summit is one of the most gorgeous found anywhere in the range. It could never draw the crowds that Pisco does because of its increased difficulty.
