Llanganuco Lakes and Portachuelo Pass

Tour by Car with some short hike

For those who do not wish to hike for any distance, we make a tour in our private transportation into the heart of the Cordillera Blanca snow capped mountains. We drive into the Demanda Valley & Huascaran National Park, first visiting the beautiful Llanganuco Lakes where we stop for photos and can also take a short walk. Then we continue in the van climbing up a spectacular zig zag road to the Pass of Portuchuelo 4767m from where there are amazing views of all the surrounding mountains. From here we are very close to all the giants of the Cordillera Blanca, including the highest mountain in Peru Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Huandoy and Pisco. From the pass you can distinguish the routes up to Pisco Base Camp and your guide can describe the climbing route up Chopicalqui.
Allow the full day.
