Laguna Churup is located 20 km east from Huaraz on the way to Llupa and Pitec; one of the most beautifull and popular to visit. From Pitec you have to hike approx. 2-3h ( 3,5 km) to reach this turquiose lake. The trek to Lake Churup is very popular and close to Huaraz but is not so easy to evoke .

Travel Program

The trail to Laguna Churup is one of the classic hikes of the Cordillera Blanca, challenging but a great acclimatization route. We drive to the village of Llupa, and from there begin our hike on an ancient Inca trail to Laguna (Lake) Churup. The trail gets narrow and steep, including a small section with fixed ropes. It‘s one of the most beautiful places in this varied mountain region. Churup Peak rises above the lake, a wild rocky mountain with glaciers and cliffs 5,400 meters above sea level. Here we can continue climbing and do a loop to the Churup summit trail before returning to the trailhead and back to Huaraz for the night.
