PARQUE NACIONAL HUASCARAN PDF

It has a lot of tunnels, it is wide enough only for one car in certain parts, but if driven during the day is pretty scenic and exciting. We made it to the small town of Caraz where we spent our first night. The Santa river runs along the valley floor in a north-westerly direction. The valley's southern extreme begins at 4, m above sea level, and descends to 2,m at its northern end past the city of Caraz where the Santa River leaves the valley. It is bordered by two mountain ranges, the snow-covered Cordillera Blanca White Mountain Range to the east, where many climbable peaks boast year-round snow above 5, m, and the Cordillera Negra Black Mountain Range to the west, reaching over 4, m but typically getting no snow as it is exposed to warm coastal winds on its western flank.
