About this program:
Departure: previous booking
Duration : 7 hours
Standing at 2078 meters high (6,670 feet), Cerro Blanco is a mountain of sand that defies easy perception. It is majestic. It is surreal. Considered the highest sand dune in the world. Cerro Blanco is the only sand dune surrounded by the brown and rocky mountain, two large valleys located on the south and north side. In the Incas time’ this was considered a sacred place where they did offerings to the “Apus” (mountains). Today Cerro Blanco is a perfect sand dune to practice sandboard, dune buggy, paragliding, ATV tours, Downhill Mountain biking, trekking and camping on the sand slopes.
About this program.
You must be fit and do not suffer any medical condittion, the program starts at 4 or 5 am. therefore you wiil have to arrive in Nasca a day earlier.
Most people head to Huacachina in Ica to do sand boarding but most don’t know about the less-visited spot nearby known as Cerro Blanco, the tallest sand dune in the world with an altitude of 2078 above sea level and a height of 1176 meters from the summit to the ground. It is located 14 kilometers away from the famous city of Nazca, visited mostly for the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Nasca lines.
At the summit of the dune, you’ll be able to observe the Nazca Valley, the Andes mountain ranges, another impressive mountain where whale and shark fossils are often found, and the Pacific Ocean on clear days.
Our tour ncludes 3 hour hike starting in the early am to avoid the drenching heat in the desert. Hike are a must because buggies can’t go up due to the steepness of the mountain. After three intense hours, you’ll reach the tallest point of the dune and your guide will help you practice practice in small cuts of the dune before letting you go all the way down from a height of 1000 meters by yourself.
Cerro Blanco is truly a great alternative to Huacachina for those looking to spend a bit more time exploring the city of Nazca and its surroundings and for those who are not too into the party scene of Huacachina.
