Hiking to Lake Churup

Our destination Lake Churup is located about 20 km east of Huaraz on the route to Llupa and Pitec inside the Huascarán National Park. It is one of the most beautiful and most visited lakes in this area. Its access, from Pítec, requires a steep hike that takes between 2 to 3 h (3.5km) to the lagoon in the place you can see (1 hour) the lake of turquoise waters with impressive beauty. The hiking tour to lake Churup (4450 masl) is one of the most popular tours and is very close to Huaraz, but it is not as easy as it seems, so it is better to leave early (approx 7am), to walk at a quiet pace and be able to rest when needed.
Another interesting option is to camp before the lake, as long as you have the necessary time and equipment.

With a private vehicle we head towards Pitec, the control place of the Huascarán National Park. Then ascend to the lake through a zigzag path, later we will have to climb some small rock walls; and after a brief stop we will arrive at the Churup lake.
