Huaraz is the restless capital of this Andean adventure kingdom and its rooftops command exhaustive panoramas of the city’s dominion: one of the most impressive mountain ranges in the world. Nearly wiped out by the earthquake of 1970, Huaraz isn’t going to win any Andean-village beauty contests anytime soon, but it does have personality, and personality goes a long way.
Dip into the thermal baths Baños Termales de Monterrey. A series of small wells and two large pools has mineral-rich waters that make the water look dark brown and rather unappealing. Take a tour to admire the Pastoruri’s mountain beauty, and the other rugged mountains, glistening lochs, breathtaking vistas.
Let us take you there – and when you’re done, just sit back & re-live the memories over a perfect Pisco Sour.
