We arrived in Huaraz Monday morning, too early. The bus pulled in at 4:30 am and a taxi driver grabbed us, knew how to get us to the hostel where we had reserved rooms, Monkeywasi, and was as helpful and friendly as can be, besides the fact that he charged us double the going rate for the short ride from the terminal to the hostel. I …

Santa Cruz trek - 4 days

... fast to be sure that not get to late for the next camping. By the way at this point all the guys were like hours in front of the girls. I made it in 8 hours. Men made it in probably 5 hours. They were so fast and no pain who was quiet good for them.

This place of camping was so great. Although we were in higher altitute than the night before but we got more much views of glaciars and a nice river to enjoy.

Up the River Santa to Huaraz

A travel blog entry by jim.coates


... I got to know this region quite well. In 1974, Rick Schultz, a buddy from Swarthmore and I came up to the valley and climbed one of the smaller peaks in the Cordillera Blanca -- Vallunaraju (5,700 m). I was very keen to see how things had changed.

The towns have been rebuilt, but in different locations. The place where Ranrahirca was covered over is an open, empty field with a statue of Jesus on the hill where a church had ...

Huaraz gateway to the Cordilera Blanca mountains

This is a top pick!

... highest mountain range outside of Nepal, and the highest one in Peru. We'd heard the mountains here are beautiful, so wanted to check them out for ourselves. There are lots of tour agencies throughout the town, but our hostel also arrange tours, so we'll speak to them first before we get some quotes. It's not that warm today either, which is how I expected to to be in a mountain town, so it will be a lot colder climbing the mountains. Once we'd done enough walking around, ...

Gustavo is the friendliest, most easygoing hostel owner we have encountered in Peru. He made us feel at home here right away. Our three kids enjoyed the climbing wall especially. The vibe is very laid back and low key.

The owner Gustavo is a great guy willing to share advice about the surroundings and his secret pizza sauce receipt. There a climbing wall out back and plenty of the people staying here love to climb so if your traveling alone theres no problem making friends to do some bouldering in the area or sharing a ride out to Hatunmachay for some sport climbing. Be aware of your food around Harriet he loves to eat :)
