Tour Plan

We pick you up at your hotel in Huaraz and drive to the town of Chavin, located 109 km away. On the way we stop at the beautiful Querococha lake (3980m). It is not uncommon to see llamas and alpacas grazing around the lake. From here the road climbs steeply to the Kawish tunnel (4516m), which cuts through the solid rock of a mountain to emerge in the Conchucos Valley. We arrive at the small town of Chavín and explore the ruins. Our guided visit lasts around 1.5 hours. After lunch we visit the excellent Chavín National Museum, which houses numerous intricately carved tenons, as well as the magnificent Tello Obelisk. Then we make our back to Huaraz.
