Breakfast. The car will pick us up to start our journey of 4 hours approx. to the northern side of the Callejón de Huaylas to then take the detour at the city of Yungay to the Huascarán National Park. along the way we can appreciate the beautiful lagoons of Llanganuco and the passage of Portachuelo (4760 meters) from where we have a spectacular view of the highest snowy mountains in Peru: Huascarán, Chopicalqui, Pisco, etc. to reach the starting point of our trek, the village of Vaqueria (3600 m). We will begin our trek from approx 4 hrs with a gently sloping walk to reach our campsite in Paria (3870 m).

We started our day long and hard with a hike of 6 to 7 hrs approx. begin our ascent through trails surrounded by queñuales trees until you reach Punta Unión (4750 meters) from where we have a view of the mountains located in this area: Taulliraju, pariah, Rinrihirka, Pucajirca, etc. We get down to our camp in Taullipampa (4200 m).
