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.

As everyone is writing here - it is a amazing place! Best view ever! We've spend there 7 days and want much more! But I would like to mention something about prices for people who want to stay a night in camping or refugee - the entrance fee is 65 soles for 21 days entrance. For one day is only... More

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 be on those roads in the dark!

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 entrance to the national park was an additional 10 soles. The hike itself took about... 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 want?

Some mindblowing landscapes. Its really awesome! You must go to Laguna 69. If you are in nice shape, you can go to Santa Cruz Trekking.

We were hesitating whether to do this tour or not. It was spectacular! The lake as well, but the trek up to it was amazing! Better than many sites on the Santa Cruz trek for example. It was our second day in Huaraz so a bit difficult to climb at 3800-4600m, we were slower than most of the group. We... More
