You can have a good look at this peak from the village of Catac, but it's best appreciated while hiking back from Lake 69. You'll want to hike as slowly as possible to admire it and engrave it in your memory.

We stayed at the Lazy Dog Inn and did this hike right out the front door. Once you reach the entrance to the park, you must "hop over" a short fence. There are sometimes locals there asking you to pay. Current pricing is 10 soles...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!

Words cannot describe this experience. You must see it for yourself. If you're anywhere in the area you have to make the drive up to the Huascaran. Plan for a whole day, as it's a slow drive there and back, and you don't want to...More

We booked a day hike to Laguna 69 with Peru Tours, located right beside the Plaza de Armas in Huaraz. The tour cost us 30 soles / person and included the 2.5 hour bus ride to the park's entrance, return trip and a guide. The...More

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

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
