This trek is about being surrounded by jaw-dropping spectacular scenery all the time. In addition to the benefit of acclimatizing for other treks. The turquoise lake is in stark and fantastic contrast to the valley walls and the snow-covered & giant peaks. With a variety of viewpoints, it’s possible to get very good to excellent views of virtually all the 11 mountain peaks around you. There are very few one-day hikes that will provide a variety of panoramas you have on this trek!

Sensational Huandoy Viewpoint

ITINERARY

Depart from Huaraz at 5:00 am to Caraz in the north of the Callejon de Huaylas. The drive from here to start of the trek is about 2 hours with the final parts within the conservation área of Huascarán National Park and winding through the deep valley with the final ascent through Queñual forest. The parking area already provides the perfect place to sit and enjoy our breakfast and lose yourself in views down the Parón Valley and across Lake Parón toward the snow-covered peaks of Paria and Garcilaso.

The trail starts off with a quite steep ascent and a bit of a scramble over rocky terrain to various viewpoints. The views from here are breathtaking! We have 5 hours to spend around the lake or up on the trail to various viewpoints. Note that the latter option may involve going a bit off-piste.

More about this tour

RECOMMENDATIONS & GENERAL INFORMATION
The Route
The roads from Caraz to the parking area in the Huascarán National Park are dirt roads, and some sections of this road might be bumpy in addition to winding sections in the ascent/descent to and from the lake.
Trekking trail
Despite being a 2.5-kilometer hike, the path consists of rocky sections that require a lot of concentration during walking, including testing each rock before stepping on it and sometimes a necessity to use hands for better balance.
Acclimatization
The trek is pleasant, given that right from the arrival at the trailhead, surrounded by spectacular scenery. Those arriving from the very low altitude can feel the higher altitude and may also have some mild symptoms of altitude sickness. of course, it depends a lot on each individual. However, if you want to get up to over 4,500 meters altitude, it would still be necessary to take another smaller walk/trek near Huaraz to test your condition and your adaptation to altitude.
Recommendations for Best Seasons
All-year-round. The best time is from mid-April to late September or early October. April, May, and June are the best months for lovers of flowers and green landscape. July through August are the best months for blue sky & also an excellent period for photographers (warm colors and clear blue skies are great!). From September to April, you get a mixed sunny and pretty cloudy landscape.
Weather
The entire Cordillera Blanca has a semi-dry and semi-cold climate, with an average maximum temperature of 23.9° C (75.0° F) and a minimum of 1.1° C (33.98° F). The climate is very unpredictable, even in the dry season it can rain. During the days, it can vary from hot to very frigid temperatures, included rain and strong winds or snow over 4800 meters above sea level. It usually starts getting cloudy more often in early September. October and November are the months when, after 2-3 pm, you can count on afternoon showers.
