  • Unfortunately, the background of the tourist attraction is very sad, but the well-preserved ruins and old stones and objects are very well maintained and the staff will endeavor to clean on this site. Unfortunately, we were the unlucky and the mountains were hung with clouds around.

  • Due to its location, the Yungay cemetery was the only thing that withstood the barrage of 1970. From the top you can see the space of what was Yungay.

  • I have visited this place whenever I have gone. Initially in the 80s, there was nothing, only projects; It is now a large garden in remembrance of the thousands of dead by the earthquake and the avalanche of the 31 of may of 1970.

  • 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.
