  • Hello, we came by car from Lima and we had our hotel in Huaraz, but went to Caraz, we leave our car in a garage and took a taxi in the whereabouts of Santa Cruz, from where depart trucks to the laguna Parón, did not want charge s/120, but in the end We agreed at s/100, we got with Mr. Crispin (have the data if you want to ask me for it) route is something complex, there are many curves but as it climbs slowly there is no problems. Taxi gives you 1 hour to estes in the lagoon before downloading, which is enough if you do not upload to the viewpoint, that rise walking demand you half an hour more.

  • In Group logistics (transport price), time on site,... I did it solo and it is expensive for a limited time to hike. But very beautiful Lake and beautiful views all the way. If you feel like it, it is possible to drive up to shelters in the face of the glacier.

  • Groups that are going to break are reduced because the road is in poor condition but worth 500%. The lagoon is really impressive. Large, turquoise, more than beautiful. The bus leaves you at the foot of the lagoon. To appreciate it you can take a path and then go to your bank. You can rent boats or kayaks. Another option is to climb 1.5 km. To the viewpoint through a narrow trail and then down a path of rocks. I overcame my fear of heights and went up to the lookout. The view is worth every step that I gave, but at times felt I was going to be paralyzed. On the road can be seen and smells of the countryside of Caraz. Caraz smells of coconut and flowers.

  • The views really have to be seen to be believed, absolutely stunning! There are various tour companies that can take you here, we found that Akilpo hostel offered some of the best deals for us, including a very discreet walk near Paramount mountain. Loved it and would recommend to anyone!
  • Amazing view
  • The color turquoise Laguna Parón with Artesonraju mountain (mountain of the Cobra logo Pictures) in the background is the vision of paradise. You can paddle a kayak in laguna.
