Huaraz – I arrived in paradise!

huaraz0

After a good 16 countries and almost 19 months of continuous travelling I finally arrived at my first (real/dream) destination:

Huaraz
(3100m – 112.000 inhabitants)

The view onto the incredible surrounding from the “Plaza de Armas”, the beautiful side of the city…

… and the other side…

Located in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca of the Peruvian Andes, the city of Huaraz is surrounded by 25(!) peaks above 6000m,
including Huascarán (6768m – the country´s highest),
Alpamayo
(5974m – voted the world´s most beautiful mountain),
a few hundred sport climbing routes,
+ the 10-day Huayhuash trek (assigned the 2nd best hike in the world)!

Sounds like busy next weeks… months…
