When the three of us reached the lake, it felt like we were the first people to have ever discovered it. It was beautifully quiet and serene, and the water was so still it was like a mirror, reflecting the surrounding mountains with perfect symmetry.
That was our last day in Huaraz and the day the brunette and the blonde Powderpuff* Girls bid farewell to the redhead.
... when we arrived in the bustling adrenaline capital of Huaraz. Huaraz sits at 3100m and is surrounded by mountains including 12+ snowy peaks. Huaraz is in the shadow of the Cordillera Blanco the second highest range of mountains in the world behind the Himalayas. The highest mountain in Peru Huascaran (6768m) can be seen from Huaraz. People come here to mountain bike, hike & ice climb. It’s a hive of activity from May through to November which is traditionally the best ...
