Only a park if you don't know the history
Oct 2015 • Couples
The whole place is one huge park. On a clear day you get good views of the mountains, but on a rainy day there's not shelter. There are "guides" who explain you the history of the terrible incident and show you pictures of the town that once stood here. But without a guide to accompany you through the park you won't know the story behind the palm-trees etc. Ok on a longer tour. But on it's own rather something to skip.

A significant landmark in Huaraz
Oct 2015 • Solo
Right in the middle of Yungay, where an avalanche swept the entire town in 1970, buriying 22,000 people in just two minutes. The cemetery holds the history of the region, where you can see the families and tell about the events that marked the city history. Two levels of graves are buried underneath as a consewquence of the avalanche, the cemetery was built on top of ancient ruins, holds graves of people who died in the war against Ecuador in 1985, plus other ones who tell the story of the place

Camino al Mirador
Jul 2015 • Solo
Take a bus and tell the driver you are going to stop here, so then you can walk 3km to get to the view point of Huaraz.

Veneration of the Dead
Jun 2013 • Couples
The contemporary veneration of the dead in Huaraz is not only an acculturation from christian beliefs but also from Andean ones. Although the Huaraz cemetery has a christian/contemporary outlook, certain days of the year, like on November 1st, you can see some syncretic practices like eating, drinking and listening to music shared with the late relatives.
