I want to invite you to discover Churup Lake (4450 m), a beautiful turquoise lagoon, located in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, in the Peruvian Andes. Join me in this 1-day guided hike and let’s spend a great day with a stunning scenery!

Churup Lake is located in the Huascaran National Park, about 20 km east of the city of Huaraz. It is nestled at the base of the snow covered Churup peak (5495 m). Besides, its water is absolutely clear. Also, it has an intense blue color near the borders of the lake.

Along this day, you we will also have the possibility to see traditional adobe houses and farmlands. Besides, local people on their traditional clothes, working the land with their hands.

We will leave the city of Huaraz by private transport to the small village of Llupa (3450 m). Then, we will start our hike to the Churup Lake. We will walk for about 4 to 4.30 hours to the lagoon.

We will stay there for about an hour. So, we will be able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and amazing sights. Then, we will start our hike back to the city of Huaraz.

So if you want to enjoy the spectactular scenery around the lake, join me in this 1-day hike to Churup Lake in Peru! Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions you may have about the program. And if you are looking for a more challenging adventure, check my 6-day ascent expedition to Nevado Alpamayo!
