Level: Basic (PD)
Yayamari is a large, heavily glaciated mountain in the remote Cordillera Vilcanota range. Perfect for your first climb over 6,000 meters because it is the easiest big peak to climb in Cusco. The name Yayamari means “Father of the lakes” in Quechua because of the many lagoons around the mountain. We will walk along lake Sibinacocha, the largest lake at 4,900mts altitude anywhere in the world. You can see the largest tropical glacier in the world, the “Ritipampa de Quelcaya”, lying SE of Yayamari.
