  • The glacier is pretty majestic, walking is about an hour to the site, really good acclamitzation trip before any long hikes. Make sure you bring lots of water and coca leave teas to prevent headaches....  more »
  • This glacial is a cool place located in Huaraz and can be visited anytime during the year. One spectacular scenario that I enjoyed.  more »
  • This is one of the places I was impressed with. There is still snow, not a lot but still. You need to carry some water, proper clothing and some chocolate that for sure you will need. I liked so much.  more »
  • Beatiful spot at high altitude (5,200 metres)... be mindful that weather conditions can change very swiftly in this sort of areas....i.e sudden blizzards and snowfall
  • When you go on the tour of the Pastoruri make a stop to book lunch, I suggest you ask for something smooth without much condiment as the height will make your digestion slower and could fall heavy. The place is spectacular, you can hire a horse to help you up but if you do it on foot slowly you can achieve it.

  • Beautiful place... Nevus and hail. There were no horses to climb because the people took them halfway and did not let them arrive at the station of the exit of the horses... So well warmed up walking

  • A beautiful place that unfortunately is close to disappear because of global warming. Don't stop visiting him!

  • An extraordinary place, the first time I went, was in year 1985 when the combis of the tours left you 3 km from the snowy and you had to walk. Then in the 2000 and the tours left you on the stairs within walking distance of the same where you can play with the snow down on the ice slides, the penalty that already gave me from that time was the thaw that was already exposed and that each time reduced its size so Irreversible. Its 5000 and so many meters of height deserves to arrive in good condition so that the foot and the fatigue do not play a bad past important takes water, that day and the night before do not eat heavy things. Take something light to eat, slippers with grip.
