Entering the height

After the culture trip around Trujillo, it is time to return into nature… So we head to Tarica, near Huaraz to explore the Cordillera Blanca.
There we receive a warm welcome from Philippe and his wife, they’re far family from Ilse. So we can use their home as a fall out base to explore the surrounding mountains and every day we receive delicious meals. A nice opportunity to end our trip!

From Tarica, we explore the nearby Huascaran NP, with a high altitude lake and hike to some other high altitude lakes. One day we have a climb from 1300m, to 4600m high. Another trip goes to a nearby glacier, but the global warming causes the ice to melt quickly.
The ruins of Chavin de Huantar are another highlight of the area, so we explore that site.
But most of the time we enjoy the clear skies and prepare for our final big trekking into the Cordillera Huayhuash…
