PUYAS RAYMONDI – PASTORURI GLACIER (5,200 meters) Special tours
After breakfast we will head south of Huaraz (7:30 a.m.) We will stop in Catac, the ideal place for a coca leave tea, which will help counteract the effects of the altitude. Once in the Huascaran National Park and having viewed the natural habitat of the wild ducks, we will walk into the world famous Puyas Raymondi forest. This plant is considered the highest flower in the world.
After taking a few pictures and tasting the mineral water from a natural spring, we go on to the Pastoruri base camp where we begin our ascent to the peak, under the care of a specialized guide. After lunch and a hot coca leave tea we return to Huaraz.
