Overview

Departure to the Nevado of Pastoruri. This is an adventure tour. We will visit the towns of the valley. This trip offers a great opportunity for a close-up view of the Pastoruri Glacier, located at 5050 m, 80 km south of Huaraz in the Huascarán National Park. Another highlight of this trip is a stop along the way to see the gigantic and rare Puya Raimondi plants. These strange plants, looking more like mutated cacti, are actually the largest member of the bromeliad family (relatives of the pineapple).

This species can be found in only a few isolated areas of the Andes. The plant usually blooms in the months of May to July, and if you are lucky enough to witness this event, it is an unbelieble sight against a spectacular snowy mountain backdrop.

Once we enter the park, we have our first views of some of the Cordillera Blanca is stunning mountains. We stop at Lake Patococha to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Further on we stop again at some unusual mineral springs. From here, we can clearly see the imposing snow-capped peak of Mururaju, which dominates this part of the valley. Later on, we stop to see the gigantic plants of Puya Raimondi. The road now climbs steeply towards the glacier and we pass beautiful mountains with cascading glaciers.
