Pisco is commonly regarded as a lookout of the Cordillera Blanca because of the easy access and stunning views from the summit. Our approach passes through the Llanganuco valley where we pass by two beautiful lakes, Chinancocha (3,850m) and Orcococha (3863m). The summit is surrounded by impressive mountains such as Huandoy (6,395m), Alpamayo (5,947m), Artesonraju (6,025m), Chacraraju (6112m), Chopicalqui (6345m), Huascaran (6,768m) and countless others.
