Laguna Churup Hike (4450m)
Being situated close to Huaraz, Laguna Churup is one of the more popular day hikes. Drive from Huaraz to Pitec at 3850m, driving through the attractive farming settlements of Unchus and Llupa. From Pitec a steady climb up a ridge to Laguna Churup 4450m, a beautiful turquoise lake below Nevado Churup. It is quite a strenuous hike, with the final 100m to the lake scrambling up a steep rock gully which some people may find difficult. About 5 to 6 hours to walk from Pitec to the lake and return.
Grade: Hard (because of the rock section).
