Overview

Visit the small lake situated at 3700m, high in the Cordillera Negra, where flocks of ducks like to swim, cows, sheep, donkeys and horses munch peacefully on the surrounding grass. The hike up to the lake passes several small Andean villages, where colorfully dressed local people still follow a traditional way of life.

The highlight of the visit is the breath-taking panoramas from a hillock by the lake, with superb views of the Cordillera Blanca. This spectacular view of the White Range is one of the best in the region. The lake is located only 10km from Huaraz. It is an ideal first acclimatization hike.

Tour Plan

We leave Huaraz and drive southwards along the main road. Around 10 minutes later, we reach the trailhead at Chiwipampa. Almost immediately, the trail starts ascending steeply towards the village of Santa Cruz. We walk on upwards past traditional Quechua homes and fields where the local people cultivate potatoes, wheat, beans and corn. After two hours of hiking, we reach the picturesque lake and are granted magnificent views of the Cordillera Blanca. A rapid descent brings us back to the main road from where we catch our transport back to Huaraz.
