International Mountain Day: Celebrating the Cordilleras

Today, 11 December 2014, is the UN World Tourism Organisation’s International Mountain Day. Join us and raise your glasses!

Meet the Mountains: Chopicalqui

High camp is a stunning place to spend the night.  Chopicalqui sits on the eastern flank of the mighty Huascarán Sur – Peru’s largest mountain. “Chopi” has the vibe of being Huascarán’s little brother but it’s still a bruiser in its own right, coming in at 6350m. If you want big, you got big.  A […]
