During a guided tour (yes we fell jnto a tourist trap), we were forced to go and see the site of this town wipe away by an earthquake. Place filled with souvenir stalls and people taking selfies with a massive statue of Christ. No thanks.

Well worth the travel to get there

If you find yourself in the area of Huaraz, the hour drive to the village of Yungay is well worth it. Cementerio de Yungay or Santo Campo is the site of the 1970 avalanche that killed all the towns residents that were at home that day. It is a somber spot, that is interesting to learn the history about. One of the guides on the property survived the avalanche because he was watching the World Cup at a friend's home the next city over. Bring a friend that speaks Spanish though.
