We stayed at the Lazy Dog Inn and did this hike right out the front door. Once you reach the entrance to the park, you must "hop over" a short fence. There are sometimes locals there asking you to pay. Current pricing is 10 soles...More

Some of the most beautiful country in Ancash State. Well worth the time to visit. The road through the park itself is nicely paved if you travel by bus. Absolutely stunning views of Huascaran.

Words cannot describe this experience. You must see it for yourself. If you're anywhere in the area you have to make the drive up to the Huascaran. Plan for a whole day, as it's a slow drive there and back, and you don't want to...More

This area of Peru is stunning. If you are in to hiking then the Santa Cruz Trek reaching 5800m ASL is a moderately hard trail not to be missed. With snow capped peaks, turquoise lakes, Eagles and Condors soaring above you what more could you...More
