If you’re planning on visiting Huaraz – hell, even if you’re not – you absolutely need to visit Laguna Paron. The largest lake in the Cordillera Blanca, it’s also one of the most beautiful.

Altitude: The mirador over the lake sits at 4,200m, the lake itself a little lower. Yep, this is really quite high

Distance: If you choose to hike from the trailhead entry, the total distance is approximately a 20km round trip. Should you take a tour that goes all the way to the lake entrance, you need only do a short walk (45 minutes there and back) up to the mirador.

Time: This is a long day trip from Huaraz, requiring a start at either 5 a.m. or 8 a.m. dependent upon the type of tour you take. Tours are usually back in Huaraz by about 6 p.m.

Base City: Huaraz.

  • If you stay in Huaraz, visiting Laguna Paron with a tour is probably your best bet as it makes sense financially and time-wise.
  • From Huaraz, it takes about three hours to reach the lagoon, and the public transport to Laguna Paron is not reliable at the moment because it is not that heavily visited.
  • Tours start early in the morning (around 5 AM and then at 8 AM), and the bus will take you directly to the lake. It means the only hiking you can do is a short walk on the lake’s shore or climb to the viewpoint.
  • You can book Laguna Paron day-tour in advance with SAM Corpotations. Visiting Laguna Paron from Huaraz is a long day, be prepared to spend eight to ten hours on the road.
  • It is also possible to take a tour of Lake Paron from Caraz – you will save at least two hours because the village is closer to the lake.
