From Huaraz, trekkineros center output to the Cordillera Blanca, one of the outputs m & aacute; s common a d & iacute; a, to acclimatize is to make the climb to the Lake Churup to 4.485m. altitude glacier coming peak Churup to 5.400m.

Huaraz is at 3,100m. altitude. That is, that the ascension & oacute; n is large, and is a good aclimataci & oacute; n & eacute for AFTER;. S make the trek from Santa Cruz

A piece you do taxi or private transportation, as you reach a track entry to some sort of natural park, where there is a will & ntilde; Miss, which charges the park entrance. The ride takes about 3,800m. altitude, and from all & iacute; begins the trek, climbing a determined way, and 6 km. of ascension & oacute; n & uacute you sit; aa nearly 4,500m


The road is very rough, overlooking the creek. In the end, just before you see above your head and reach the peak Churup Lagoon, an intens blueor & ntilde Breeding occurs; very stony and steep to be overcome. You can upload both the right and the left of the spoils. The truth is there is no way any of the two sides. We climbed the left, and it really was like climbing the side slope of a stream, for some steep rocks, quite high. On the way down, we met other trekkineros and explained that the rise on the other hand was quite complicated, no way, and huge stones.

The rise well, the worst was the descent. In any case, at the top, I compensate because the place is bell & iacute; simo, lagoon Churup at the foot of the glacier that generates, and some meters m & aacute; s above the peak, about 5,400 m, ie, almost. I pod & iacute; as you play with your hands


That's one of the beauties of the Andes, you can almost touch the tops, and I think that approach m & aacute; s heaven


On the way back we passed the ruins ofWilkawin a m & aacute place, logical, worth visiting
