Peru - Huaraz & the Cordilleras (Chapter)
This is the Huaraz & the Cordilleras chapter from Lonely Planet’s Peru guidebook.
Ground zero for outdoor adventure worship in Peru, the Cordilleras are one of the pre-eminent outdoor spots in South America. Every which way you throw your gaze, perennially glaciered white peaks razor their way through expansive mantles of lime-green valleys.
- traipse for weeks around the magnificent peaks of the Parque Nacional Huascarán
- ride the astonishing highway between Huaraz and Chiquián, where postcard-ready panoramas of the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash lie before you like a painting
- see what all this trekking fuss is about at Lagunas Llanganuco and Laguna 69, two of the best day trips in the Cordilleras
- restaurants & accommodations
