As an internationally certified mountain guide (UIAGM-IFMGA), Hisao has a contagious passion for adventure that has led him to explore the highest peaks of the Cordillera Blanca Mountain Range. His interest in climbing started at a young age as Hisao worked with local and international guides, receiving invaluable training from Swiss and German instructors that provided him with a strong foundation in mountaineering, ultimately leading him to pursue professional training as a guide.
Hisao took a short break from climbing to pursue his academic interests in Lima where he attended university, earning dual-degrees in Psychology and Philosophy. As a lover of language-learning, he also spent some time in New Zealand in 2003 to improve his English before returning to Huaraz to open the mountaineering agency, Peruvian Andes Adventures.
As Manager of Morales Hotel, Hisao looks forward to your visit and helping you make the most of your adventure.
