  • Yungay has a very interesting story, though sad. The site suffered from an avalanche that buried the city and ended up killing almost your entire population. The place is very nice, with many colorful flowers with a backdrop of beautiful mountains of ice.

  • The views are beautiful from all angles and the back story is touching. They should improve a little more care in the whole journey to preserve the Holy field.
