You can get there from Huaraz by Collectivo. Take it to Pitec. Afterwards you will get to the entrance of the national reserve, there you will have to pay 10 soles. The start of the climbing is quite challenging, but the view fron the Mirador on the lake is very satisfying and rewarding.
Great views from the top and a great way to help with the acclimatisation. Lovely little scramble to get up the waterfall to add a little excitement.
I'm 64 and average fitness and found this hike to be pretty difficult. My 25 year old son bounded up way ahead of me - he didn't seem to find the hike to difficult at all. There were a couple of spots where I wasn't sure of the trail, but I guess I was lucky and happened to pick the... 更多
Great first day trek to acclimatise to altitude before a longer hike. Easy to get to by public transport and very rewarding views. I recommend hiking the extra 40mins from the lake to the small lake higher up next to the glacier. Route is very easy and can be followed on mapsme. A few sections where there is a fixed... 更多
Easy hike. One of the most recommended. It's a starter for us during our acclimatization process for a second year in a row. You can take a taxi or a "collectivo" from Huaraz to get to the beginning of the hike. Park Rangers will collect the fee (10 soles) by the beginning of the path.
Laguna Churup is a challenging but rewarding day hike near Huaraz. You can get here either by taking a collectivo to Llupa and walking an hour uphill to the park entrance, (from which your 2 hour hike to the lake starts) or taking a taxi all the way up to the park entrance. Would recommend taking a taxi up to... 更多
A very rewarding though somewhat demanding dayhike - I would definitely recommend it for a readily-accessible acclimatization hike not far from Huaraz. Note that there are some very steep rock sections that require fixed ropes and could be sketchy in rainy weather.
It is a good hike for 3-4 day in Huaraz, when you are already acclimatised. It's a 1,5-2,5 h depends on your shape and speed. There is a few parts with climbing with ropes. On Laguna you will find a great views and on the trek a few waterfalls. You have to take a combi to Pitec for 10 soles... 更多
