We were fortunate that a friend has a good friend in Huaraz who is an expert on the local mountains. He took us up this god-awful dirt road to the mountaineering school that is just inside the park near glacier fronting the three mountains (Vallunaraju,...More

It was a extremely tough walk up to the Lagoon 69 at the top and it took 3 and a half hours but when you finally reach the top the views are beautiful, just stunning. It began snowing a little at the top but we...More

Some of the most beautiful country in Ancash State. Well worth the time to visit. The road through the park itself is nicely paved if you travel by bus. Absolutely stunning views of Huascaran.

This is an undiscovered treasure with remote trails and views that never end. Visit this park before it gets popular!

This area of Peru is stunning. If you are in to hiking then the Santa Cruz Trek reaching 5800m ASL is a moderately hard trail not to be missed. With snow capped peaks, turquoise lakes, Eagles and Condors soaring above you what more could you...More

We were hesitating whether to do this tour or not. It was spectacular! The lake as well, but the trek up to it was amazing! Better than many sites on the Santa Cruz trek for example. It was our second day in Huaraz so a...More

Once one sees Torres del Paine, the bar becomes so very high that it is really hard to beat. It must be really another twist or an angle to enjoy some other mix of experiences. In this respect Peru's Cordillera Negra/Blanca... More
