Lake Parón, Peru
Just a 2 hour trip from Haurez, and arguably our favorite place we found in Peru. Hidden in the fog is the infamous Paramount Pictures peak, and to either side of us the majestic Andeas ominously rise past the clouds. During our hike we witness two avalanches and then kayaked over the bright blue water to top off the afternoon. The bus ride to get there is a rough and bumpy journey, but it is well worth the trip. If you are traveling to Peru we highly recommend Haurez and the numerous adventures like rock climbing, mountain biking and trekking that the charming mountain town has to offer.
