  • Part of a group tour arrived at this tribute to the victims of this catastrophe for almost 50 years, really daunting to understand its magnitude, the cities are rebuilt by their survivors, here were very few. I think we should visit this place to understand that nature you don't play. Do not let go.

  • It was the first tapered cemetery I met. Its shape comes from a strong connection with the mythical Andean peoples. For having been destroyed by the massive earthquake and avalanche of 1970, it is being rebuilt. An important part of the historical tragedy of struck Yungay.

  • Simply impressive is the second time that I come back the last was in 2015. You will find a small cheap manual Historia de Yungay only in Spanish which will summarize everything you. Following an earthquake on May 31, 1970, an entire city was destroyed making 22000 dead. A cemetery was built, and the dead are placed side by side as they were when they lived in their town. It's all simply impressive the cemetery with the cross that we see by far and the site where it is this sad event. You can't remain insensitive to this visit.

  • Beautiful
  • A sad experience, zero client focus
  • Makes historic place, in a ravishing beauty, mix of natural landscape, memories of a tragedy which occurred almost half a century, the snow-capped mountains around and gardens that have now grown and that sit on what was the old village of Yungay destroyed by one Avalanche in 1970, as a result of the detachment of a piece of the Huascarán. It is impressive to visit this place and contemplate the giant rocks that ended with the town, as well as vestiges that remain so far as a witness to this tragedy.

  • Interesting and a little sad, is buried by the avalanche of 1970. A piece of the nevado Huascarán snapped and fell into avalanche, covering the entire city of Yungay. Whole families died buried, 25000 people were killed.
