Escalada Nevado Mateo tu primera cumbre, uno de los picos nevados de acceso corto en la cadena montañosa de Cordillera Blanca, Ancash. El pico Mateo tiene una altura de 5150 metros y es considerado un cinco mil técnicamente de mediano ascenso y la ventaja es que es posible llegar a su cima en un dia. Sin embargo todo ascenso a un nevado implica ciertos riesgos y por lo tanto se requieren los equipos, guias y experiencia adecuadas.

El sendero para llegar hasta el glaciar Mateo es rocoso y con ciertas pendientes no aptas para quienes sufren de vértigo y puede tomar de 3 a 4 horas para llegar a la cima y depende mucho de la condición física del escalador.

Para el ascenso en el glaciar es necesario tener cierta técnica y experiencia de manejo de equipos de escalada como el piolet y marcha con grampones.

*Price only mount climbing: It requires at least 2 days of prior acclimatization, which can be done independently or see our tour options HERE **Minimum number of people to book: 02 (Consult us if on the date you want there is a any group departure you can join)

    que emocion de llegar a la cima vale la pena el sacrificio, sufrir mucho para disfrutar por primera vez viendo las montañas mas altas del Peru y lo mejor la paciencia de Romel para animarnos en cada paso

    It was really worth taking this tour after hiking in Huayhuash for 10 days, a not so easy route but getting to the top and having views of the Huscaran mountain is the best reward.
