Huaraz Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 19 photos
The second day turned out to be cloudy at first so we walked only 2 or 3 hours and decided to camp out for the night to let the weather pass. The South Africans and the British gal were in a rush so they parted away past the big overpass. We camped next to a lagoon just before the big overpass of the trek. Luck was in our favor, and by early afternoon that same day, the clouds were gone so we got to see an amazing view of the snowy mountains, which are the best I have ever seen, even to this date. The Aussie told me that these peaks make those in Canada and the Rocky Mountains look like little hills. The sizes of these peaks are amazing. We took a daytrip that afternoon to the top of a peak and got an even better view of the snowy peaks. We camped at about 4200 meters above sea level that night. Being so high, we couldn't find firewood to make a fire. That didn?t stopped us from appreciating a bright full moon sparkling on the lagoon and illuminating the towering snowy peaks.
