In the north of the Cordillera Blanca, Chopicalqui is a fairly popular peak due to its easy access and relatively straightforward route on the southwest ridge to the summit.
Chopicalqui photographed in the early 1990's from Pisco to the north
and another shot taken in 2003 from high on the neighbouring peak of Yanapaccha.
We can organise guided ascents of this peak. For details of how to climb Chopicalqui and the neighbouring peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, please see our guidebooks, which are available in English, Spanish, Polish and French editions, direct from us or from all good bookshops and mountaineering shops.
