Laguna parón is an incredible place to visit.

The altitude of the city affected me a lot, I felt tired and dizzy so I wasn't able to visit many places.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I had spent more time in the city to get to know other lagoons and did the tour on the pastoruri glacier, but the attitude of the place affects me a lot.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    The bus trip to Huaraz was very difficult because the road had many climbs and curves so I got really dizzy. And the height of the city affects me a lot because I wasn't used to it, I was always tired, I almost couldn't walk. Of the five days I was in the city, only one day I went to visit a tourist attraction in Laguna parón and the other days I stayed at the hostel because I felt very tired.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    The best time to go is from May to September, the dry season, when there is more guarantee of clear and sunny days.
