Huaraz- Laguna Churup 1 day
This 1 day hike is perfect to warm up for a longer trekking to, get used to altitude.
We begin our tour heading east from Huaraz (7:30 a.m.) After enjoying a view of the small traditional and typical villages of the area, we will reach Pitec, the perfect location to view the Cordillera Blanca and Negra. We will begin the ascent using one of the most beautiful trails in the Cordillera Blanca. After climbing white granite rocks and crossing rivers, we reach Churup, a lake considered by many as the prettiest of the area. After a deserved rest and enjoying lunch by the crystal blue waters, we will go on to the base of the Churup peak where we can appreciate a small but wonderful lake. We retake the trail to Pitec where our vehicle will be waiting to take us back to Huaraz.
