Pequeño Alpamayo (5350m) 3 days

Pequeño Alpamayo is a perfect shaped mountain since it looks like a white massive pyramid. It is the perfect mountain for those getting initiated on ice climbing. A good mountain before Huayna Potosi.

No need experience, however you must be well acclimatised. If you are not going to do an acclimatising trek, you must be over 3500m at least for 6 days to have more chances to get to the top.
