HUARÁS that is how it is supposed to be spelled ( if you do not use the accent it is better to write Huaraz)
the capital of the departamento (kind of like a State) of Ancash, which is the departamento north of Lima.

Huaraz is the navel to all the adventure trips because it is bordered by "Cordillera Blanca" the Andes on one side and the "Cordillera Negra" Rocky type of Mountains on the other side and the rafty river "rio santa" that forms a picturesque valley. All the towns inside the alley from Huaraz to the Llanganuco lake enclose so much tradicion that you can poignantly capture it even trhough a simple bus ride through the alley "callejon de Huaylas"
Huaraz is in the heart of the "Callejon de Huaylas" = Huaylas Alley. Just imagine a White range of mountains in one side and a Rocky type of mountains in the other. In the middle the "Santa" river runs with a heavy, bubbly white water raft. Huaraz concentrates the nucleos of the comercial and turistic life of the region. So everything girates around this fun valley.
