  • 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.

  • These people suffered so much from the massive avalanche that so many people lost their lives. There is some little restaurant that have really good food. You do need 1/2 soul for the bathroom. The views are breath taking and the gift shops there have really reasonable prices. There are some poor people in the area that will ask for money and remember to be picky to who you give money to. Bring lots of water.
  • Having the feeling of standing above more than 25000 lost lifes.... is quite unsettling and makes you feel so sorry for the tragedy that occured here 48 years ago
  • Not bad
  • Beautiful
  • A sad experience, zero client focus
