Laguna Ahuac Hike (4560m)
Hidden high in the hills behind Huaraz at the base of Vallunaraju mountain is the small and isolated lake Laguna Ahuaccoha at 4560m. This is a little known hike and we are almost certain to have the trail to ourselves. First we take our private car for half an hour to the ruins of Wilkawain. We start off hiking on a wide grassy path, climbing steadily upwards through farmland with views of the surrounding mountains. We then climb more steeply and continuously until we come over the top of a rock wall to be surprised by the appearance of the bright blue lake. On the return if we still have time we can visit the ruins of Wilkawain.
