This hike is very near the city of Huaraz, and comes with public or private transportation to a small town called Pitec. There we will begin the walk. This lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Cordillera Blanca and is known for its turquoise color. The road is very nice, and you get to the base of Mount Churup. Below this mountain is the lake. This hike is also very good for acclimation, and can be done in 1 or 2 days.
