Highlights

  • Visit the beautiful Laguna Churup high up in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru.
  • Hike in the enormous, picturesque Huascaran National Park.
  • Spend some time in the wonderful town of Huaraz.

Description

There are an abundance of amazing spots to visit in the Huascaran National Park in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. And on this full day trip, I would like to take you to one of the most beautiful spots there is, the Laguna Churup (4,500m).

Beginning in Huaraz (3,100m), we will take a short drive in a private vehicle to the Pitec (3,900m) in the Huascaran National Park. Once we reach the park, we will begin our scenic hike.

The hike through the park will be quite easy. You do not have to be a hiking expert to participate, and there are no technical aspects to the hike to worry about. As a result, this trek is accessible to almost anybody. However, you should be in good physical condition, as we will be hiking for approximately 4 to 5 hours at a high altitude.

Once we reach the Laguna Churup, you will get to spend a great deal of time admiring its beauty. You will get to gaze at its glacial blue water. The sight is sensational, and with the backdrop of peaks looming above and beyond, it will create quite a lasting image.

So if you want to explore a beautiful high altitude lagoon in the mountains of Peru, this trip is for you. All you have to do to be a part of it is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and leading you to the Laguna Churup.

I can also guide you on another day long trek to the Laguna 69 as well. This trek also involves 30 minutes of repelling!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
