Trekking Laguna Paron Adventure over (4200 m)

You are here:

Trekking to Laguna Laguna Paron: The Laguna Paron (4200 m), 25km east of Caraz, is surrounded by spectacular snow-covered peaks, of which Pirámide de Garcilaso (5885 m), at the end of the lake, looks particularly brilliant. The challenging rock-climbing wall of Torre de Parón, known as the Sphinx , is also found here. The road to the lake goes through a canyon with 1000m-high granite walls – this drive is as spectacular as the better-known Llanganuco trip.

Fit and acclimatized hikers can trek to the lake in one long day. If you go on your own, be aware that you cannot circumnavigate the lake. The north shore is fine, but there is a very dangerous section on the south shore that is impassable due to potential falls up to 100m where the trail briefly disappears in favor of an unmarked section where slippery vegetation grows flush against the mountain surface. Two foreigners have attempted.

Travel Program

Our privat transport drove up to Carhuaz, Yungay and Caraz. From Caraz the valley below, quiet little farming town that specializes in growing berries and carnations, a small dirt road winds its way up to a beautiful lake surrounded by all those famous mountains. Laguna Paron (4200 m ) is as picturesque as it can get. Trekking around up to the aquamarine lake surrounded by snow-covered peaks is an unforgettable experience. We hiked to the end of the lake, an easy hike about 2 hours with great views of nature, after enjoy our day return to Huaraz.
