FD- Laguna de Llanganuco (The Llanganuco Lake) Yungay at Campo Santo
Start 8:30 am, finish 16:30 h; duration 8 hours
Todayâ€™s tour includes a very interesting and touching full day tour with the focus on natural beauty and tragedyâ€¦
You start with visiting the town of Carhuaz, known for its great ice-cream, made of fresh fruits and milk.
Then you continue to Laguna Llanganuco, 84 km from Huaraz at an altitude of 3850 m. This brightly colored lake is surrounded by snowcapped mountains and trees from a fairytale story.
You will have time to make a short walk around the lake before the tour continues to Caraz. This town is known for its tasty manjar (kind of caramel cream).
The last stop of the day is in Yungay at Campo Santo. On the 31th of May 1970 a heavy earthquake and the following massive avalanche buried this whole town and most of its citizen under meters of ice, mud and rocks. The only silent witnesses are the tops of 4 palm trees from the former main plaza. When you walk around the stories about the survivors, the death and their families come back to liveâ€¦
