From its summit to the east you can appreciate the impressive Chacraraju, in the north you can see the Pyramid of Garcilaso, the Artesonraju, Quitaraju, Alpamayo and Santa Cruz; to the East the Snowy Caraz, Aguja, El Cerro, La Esfinge, and Huandoy with its 4 peaks; to the south the highest snowy of the Cordillera Blanca and Peru, Huascarán North and South, together with Chopicalqui. The Pisco is a relatively easy snowy, this is accessed by its normal route. It has the name of the traditional Peruvian drink, the name could be attributed to the pisco the porters drank at the summit to celebrate the first ascent. The Pisco is considered ideal to adapt to the altitude and chosen by many mountaineers to finalize a trekking or to acclimatize before a climbing of greater technique requirements.
