Laguna Par贸n - Climbing Caraz - Peru

Laguna Par贸n sparkles deep with turquoise waters. The surrounding snow-capped peaks are reflected in the depths of the lagoon, making them feel even taller and more magnificent. At the end of the lake, the Pir谩mide de Garcilaso sits proudly. There is also a challenging rock climbing wall called the Torre de Par贸n, or the Sphinx. The drive to the Laguna is spectacular; ambitious and fit hikers can trek to it, otherwise you can take a day-long organized trip with a tour agency, or, if you prefer to go independently, hire a taxi from the Plaza de Armas in Caraz for around $30 for up to four people-the round trip includes a two-hour wait at the lake itself. Alternatively, you can take a combi from Caraz to the town of Par贸n, which is approximately a four-hour hike from the lake.
