Above Huaraz, after an hours drive, your and your guide arrive at the entrance of the Huascaran National Park.

You will hike through a small queu?a forest and scramble up a trail next to a stream finally reaching Lake Churup (4,450 m / 14,600 ft), a beautiful, deep blue lake at the foot of the icy peak of the same name.
