Tours & Treks in Huaraz

This small mining city in North of Peru is often referred to as the Switzerland of the Americas. This is because of the imposing and absolutely breathtaking peaks that are clearly visible from the center of Huaraz. This province is home to the highest peaks in Peru, Mt Huascaran (6 768m/22 205ft) and Huandoy (6 360m/ 20 870ft) and another 3 peaks above 6 000m. Its famous for the Cordillera Blanca Mountain range and its Llanganuco lakes, all enclosed within the Huascarana National Park.

It’s a traveler’s paradise for winter sports and adventure enthusiast. Local activities include: ice climbing, hiking, mountain biking and snowboarding among other things. Visit the Cordillera Blanca for the most extensive tropical ice-covered mountain range. Next visit the Lllanganuco Lakes which, are made of a number of lakes, including Lake Huandoy thats fed by the second highest peak in the region. It has simple access and has spectacular views of the scenery. Another famous lake is Lake 69, declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve and world heritage site. The hike to this stunning lake is a moderate full day hike. For those that enjoy a bit of a challenge, you can find peaks like Nevado Meteo, this icy peak is perfect for ice climbing and other winter sports.

If you enjoy something more relaxing and less thrill seeking be sure to visit the medicinal baths of Monterrey, in a beautiful location surrounded by amazing snow blanketed mountain views. Unfortunately, in 1970, 95% the town of Yungay was destroyed by an earthquake and over 20 000 lives were lost. The only thing that remains of this town pre-earthquake is Jose Olaya Street, which you can still visit to get a feel of old Huaraz. Opposite plaza de armas is Museo Archeologico Augusto Soriano where you can learn about the older tribes that settle here before the Incas. Due to it being a mining town you can head to the paraditas (street market) to purchase local mined and manufactured jewelry made from tin, copper and silver. Another great place is to visit is the Wilcachuain Temple, only 8km from the town. This is a Pre-Inca citadel with beautiful ancient ruins to explore.

The food here, like in the majority of places in Peru, is absolutely delightful. While in town try Caraz, a milk-based desert mixed with fruit cake. Or better yet, Ceviche de Chocho, which is served with a typical and nutritious legume. It’s a must visit city for any adventurer and has a non-ending list of activities ensuring you’ll never find a dull moment.
