The sights of the lake and mountain are fantastic. The hike itself is a bit of a trek. The cables section can be tricky, especially getting down, and is not for the faint-hearted. Its a great hike, and not too far up (a little less...More

We had planned to do this as a guided hike but ended up going alone. We got a collectivo from Huaraz to Pitec (15 soles each. About an hour journey) and this brings you to the beginning of the trail. It's tough from the start...More

What a hike! Starting from Llulac up to the National Parc is already worthwhile. The hike to the lake itself starts with a steep path and takes your breath away. In both senses. Because of a thunderstorm we had to abort the last part above...More

Easy accessible from Huaraz; hire your own cab driver or sign up for a ride in a mini bus at Casa de Guias or various hotels. You can buy your one-day park pass from the park ranger upon your arrival in Pitec or use your...More
