Huaraz: Full-day Tour to Lake Parón with Optional Lunch

1. Huaraz: Full-day Tour to Lake Parón with Optional Lunch

Departing from Huaraz city, you’ll head to the northern part of the Callejón de Huaylas. When arriving at Carhuaz, you’ll make a small stop to buy breakfast and snacks for the road. Drive through the landscapes and cities of the scenic Huaylas valley, with the Santa River meandering through it.  Head to a lookout point for a panoramic view of the Cordillera Blanca, and the snowy mountains of Huandoy Huascarán and Chopicalqui.  Then, continue through Marcara, a city characterized by its traditional customs and clothing. Visit the main square and the San Pedro church. The route continues to the ancient city of Yungay, which was buried by an avalanche during the earthquake of May 1970.  Next, head to Lake Parón, the highlight of the day. Be amazed by the turquoise blue lake, surrounded by glacial peaks that rise to over 6,000 meters (19,700 feet). Lake Parón is one of the largest lakes in the Cordillera Blanca. If you choose the private option, you will enjoy a stop for lunch overlooking the lake. The last stop will be at Caraz, where you can see the Plaza de Armas, the city’s famous candy stores and other main sites. You will then return to your hotel in Huaraz.
