  • It's a nice hike to do: it takes 2 hours of climb (and only the climb!), with a great view all along I think it's still demanding (bravo for anyone who finds it easy): take good hiking shoes and lots of water. Don't leave too late in the morning, to avoid the clouds! On the other hand: the Laguna was a disappointment on the spot. We expected to see a body of water as beautiful as the Laguna 69 or Churup: this is not the case at all! What's worth it is the view of the White Cordillera: the view is breathtaking (yes, yes: even more than the altitude!)

  • Nice walk through the countryside, near Huaraz, to start the acclimatization phase. It can be a right out ingende upon Huaraz. Greetings to the peasants who live in these mountains!
