Why go to Huaraz?

 

"Callejon de Huaylas is a green rug covered with white sheet" (Antonio Raymondi)

 

Talk about HUARAZ is to talk about CALLEJON DE HUAYLAS. The departament of ANCASH has for capital the city of Huaraz. It covers the HUASCARAN NATIONAL PARK, of 340 mil hectares, declared by UNESCO Natural Heritage of the Humanity in 1985. Its main touristic circuit starts on the CALLEJON DE HUAYLAS.

 

Along the Callejon de Huaylas we'll find exotic towns, and if we could go very inside the Huascaran National Park we would find a great variety of flora and fauna, a lot of blue lagoons besides the popular Chinancocha one in the Llanganuco gully. We would see many snow peaks like the Huascaran (the highest of Peru at 6768 meters of altitude). The Pastorury of 5000 mts. was very popular and attended until the 90's. It was ideal for ski and other snow adventure sports. Recordemos la famosa "Semana del Andinismo" que cada año congregaba a expertos montañistas y deportistas de aventura de todo el mundo para desafiar a nuestra agreste geografía.

 

It was recorded 779 species of high andean flora and 112 species of birds. Some of the species are close to the extintion if we don't take care of them like: vicuña, taruca, mountain cat, andean cat, glasses bear, andean condor, torrent duck and the patridge of the high andes.

 

We must mention the province of Huari, where is located the highest and oldest civilization of Peru: CHAVIN DE HUANTAR, studied by great archeologysts like Julio C. Tello and Federico Kaufmann Doig.

 

The geography of the HUascaran National Park offer all the perfect conditions to practice sports of adeventure: Canoying, Parapent, Kajac, Ciclying, etc. For this, on june of every year, it was organized the "Andeanism Week", an international competition aimed to challenge our rough geography, sponsored by the great transnationals. So, the Huascaran National Park is also a privileged place for long wlks and high mountain climbings.

On the road, we'll see several towns located in that Callejon: Marcara, Chancos, Carhuaz, Saint Campus of Yungay. We could see the Huascaran snow mountain, the highest of Peru at 6768 meters of altitude.
