Huaraz Travel Guide

Huaraz is a city in central Peru. It has a population of approximately 100,000 and is the capital of the Ancash region. Huaraz is situated at an altitude of 3100 m in the Andes mountains, some 450 km north of Lima.

The town itself is not very special. Most of it was destroyed in the 1970 earthquake. But it is a prime destination for hikers and ideal for climbers. The setting at the foot of the Cordillera Blanca is great. It is located in a valley called the Callejon de Huaylas.

The city of Huaraz sits in the agriculturally important Callejón de Huaylas valley, at the foot of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, which includes Huascarán, the highest mountain in Peru at 6768 m. Huascarán National Park is a popular destination for tourism and trekking, and Huaraz is a frequent base for expeditions to the Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash. Tourists often come from Germany, Greece, France, Italy, Argentina, the UK and the United States.

Distances:
• From Lima: 400 kms. (248.5 miles ) .
