From $ 30
A full day tour relatively of little physical demand, the route includes an almost flat road along Lake Paron, which is famous for being the largest and longest lake in the Cordillera Blanca and the hike includes the journey through the valley to the Artesoncocha lake, which is located just below a set of glaciers of the snowy peaks called: Garcilazo, Paria and Artesonraju; the latter also known as the “Paramount”. This tour will take you through one of the most spectacular and beautiful valleys of the Cordillera Blanca and that is not even very besieged by tourists in large numbers as it is in Laguna 69 for example.
Moderate to hard, the highest point in this hike is Lake Artesoncocha (4700m/15,420ft)
You are in a place with all cleaning and biosecurity protocols.
It means that social distancing on the tour is a natural thing.
All guided tours in Spanish and English. Groups could be mixed.
Depart from Huaraz at 5:00am, drive to Caraz the last city of Callejon de Huaylas valley and then we will take the unpaved road until the trek starts (Laguna Paron), in total about 3 hours with the final parts within the conservation area of Huascarán National Park and snaking through the valley with the final ascent ascending through Queñual forests. On the shore of Laguna Paron is the parking point of our vehicle, where we will take a few minutes to prepare for hiking.
The trail starts along the northern shore of Laguna Parón until near the end of the lake, then we will take a path that heads towards the valley towards Artesonraju (also known as “Paramount”). In this part we will be crossing several rivers and streams to reach the path that leads to the Artesoncocha lake (4,290m). From the lake we have the opportunity to climb a little higher to get even better panoramic views of the mountains that surround us (mountains called Caraz, Artesonraju, Paria, Garcilazo, Chacraraju and Pisco). This charming place is the point for our lunch and then return along the same path to our vehicle that is waiting to take us back to Huaraz.
