If you want to know the Paron Lagoon, do not hesitate to sign up for this excursion from Huaraz. We will do a trekking route from Caraz in which we will see the impressive landscapes of the Cordillera Blanca.


  • Lake Parón is the largest lake in the Cordillera Blanca.
  • Turquoise color as well as the surrounding peaks will not leave you indifferent.
  • From Lake Parón you can admire the Pyramid of Garcilaso, the Nevado Pisco.


Itinerary We will pick you up at your hotel in Huaraz at 8:00 a.m. and travel north through the province of Huaylas until we reach the Paron Lake, one of the largest and most attractive of the so-called Cordillera Blanca. As we get closer, we will see the beautiful landscapes of the snow-capped peaks of Caraz and Piramide. We will continue driving towards the northeast of the Callejón de Huaylas until we reach the town of Caraz, from where we will begin the ascent by minibus to the lagoon. Here, we will start walking for about an hour and a half along the left side of the lagoon. The hiking route will show us the best landscapes of the Cordillera Blanca, a picture that is completed with the impressive Paron Lagoon, the largest natural freshwater reservoir in the region. You will have half an hour of free time at the lagoon to rest and enjoy the scenery. With your batteries recharged, we will start the hike back to Caraz. There we will enjoy a traditional sweet, the famous manjar blanco. Finally, and with this good taste in our mouths, we will return to your hotel in Huaraz. We will finish the excursion at approximately 5:30 pm.


Pick up and transfer back to the hotel. Transportation by minibus. English and Spanish speaking guide. Traditional candy in Caraz.
