It is one of the mountains located in the Cordillera Blanca, within the Huascarán National Park, Ancash. Its top can be easily seen from the city of Huaraz. The peak has an altitude of 5,685 meters and is technically considered a 5,000 medium climb, and the advantage is that it can be done in just 2 days.
However, any ascent to a peak implies certain risks and therefore requires: adequate prior acclimatization, the necessary technical equipment, qualified mountain guides and experience hiking in rugged areas.
Moderate, the top of the Vallunaraju's mountain is 5685 meters

At 2:00 a.m. approx. After an early breakfast, our ascent begins and after 20 minutes we will arrive at the beginning of the glacier. After roped ourselves up and verifying all the technical material, we will continue the ascent through the south-west face and after overcoming some cracks and changing paths (due to climate change).
