WHY CHOOSE AN OFFICIAL MOUNTAIN GUIDE?
The Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash are mountainous regions whose beauty is dreamlike. The best example is snow covered Alpamayo Mountain. It is the most beautiful mountain in the world. Huaraz is the South American mecca for adventure sports and is also considered one of the best regions on the continent for practicing mountain climbing as well as trekking.
Tourists from all over the world visit this fantastic area every year. This touristic flow is taken advantage of many times by individuals, without professional technical formation, to guide in the mountains. They see this situation as an opportunity to earn money. In the great majority of cases, this often results in dissatisfied clients, a scam or worse still a security risk for the client. This behavior gives tourists the idea that all guides are not trustworthy.
We suggest that tourists consider the services and information provided by the official mountain guides of the AGMP-RA. These official guides demonstrate competence in both technical and security levels in accordance with international standards. Their strict formation as mountain guides aides them in performing their jobs with great responsibility.
The AGMP is known for its security and quality. For this reason, the AGMP and UIAGM mountain guides have been accredited with these titles in the name of the nation of Peru.
