Huascaran, Huascaran National Park

(600+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Huascaran represents a large national park known for its high-peaked mountain ranges and mountaineering opportunities. The park earned its World Heritage Site ranking thanks in large part to being home to Cordillera Blanca, the world’s tallest tropical mountains. This Peruvian paradise boasts 340,000 hectares (840,158 acres) to explore, and is home to a diverse range of wildlife, such as spectacled bears and Andean condors. Visitors come here to take advantage of the many trekking routes, which tend to be less busy than other spots and still home to indigenous communities. For hard-core outdoor adventurers, the mountains provide a real challenge. Rising from 3,500 m to 6,768 m (11,483 ft to 22,205 ft), the peaks are perennially snow-capped and tantalizing to experienced climbers and mountaineers.

  • Sensational landscapes comprise the most scenic in the country park. Whoever knows it must prepare for cold and hiking, but rewarded by unspeakable places.

  • Good this trip was of a moment to another, certainly, I and my family decided to take us some small holiday of did tours by Huaraz, are of Chimbote, traveled to Huaraz, and arrived and bought sweaters of coat, gloves, and asked the price of them tours and went in an agency of travel called Peruandina, say that this agency not offered a service so good , since there were problems with other people that they reserved seat, and then there was no seat for someone, as you will fill up the bus so that was what that matter not I recommend this agency..., well we arrived almost to the end of 2 hours and a half, the Huascaran National Park, where is had that pay to enter both child and adult I don't remember the price, but well, it makes a horrible cold, feels ugly, gives headache, but good from my perspective I can say that some passengers were on the bus, here are some pictures...
