Rio Abiseo National Park

Timonator Germany - 02-Nov-23

Rio Abiseo National Park

We´ve made it to the Río Abiseo National Park in Peru! Apparently it´s one of the more difficult places to visit in South America but with the knowledge I have gained I thjnk it is quite feasable for everyone now. Nevertheless it cost me an investment of at least 3 days of travelling and planning to make it

Huascaran National Park

Timonator Germany - 27-Oct-23

Huascaran National Park

We did the daytrip to Laguna 69, which was offered by our hostel and operated by Solis for 50 /S per Person plus the entrance fee to the NP of 30 /S for one day. I will not describe the details of the hike as it was done before in other reviews e.g. by Fréderic.

However for me the weather in the middle of October was not very good. It was cloudy until noon when we reached the lagoon and up there it started hailing and raining. On the way back down it was a frequently changing mixture of rain and sunshine. Due to the clouds the views of the snow capped mountains were limited and also the colours of the lagoons were less bright than with light. Actually the most beautiful lagoon was the "female" lagoon of the Llanganucos were you pass by in the bus on the way to the trailhead of laguna 69 and normally a photostop is made

Chan Chan

Timonator Germany - 27-Oct-23

Chan Chan

We stayed for a week in Huanchaco, which is a former fishermen's village and nowadays town close to Trujillo on the other side of the historical town of Chan Chan which is basically separating Huanchaco from Trujillo together with the airport. Huanchaco is nice- we took our first surf classes, there´s always fresh fish until sunset and you can witness the usage of the caballitos de tortora (reet boats) that have been used since ancient times by Moche and Chimú cultures and probably don´t qualify for modern safety standards.  Chimú is also the culture that lived in Chan Chan until 1500 a.D.. It developed from the Moche culture that habituated the coast and had its centre at the Río Moche a bit south of Trujillo

Chavin

Timonator Germany - 18-Oct-23

Chavin

Chavin is an ancient culture from BC on the more green, wet side of the Andes. It's a nice daytrip from Huaraz. Precisely you can tick off two WHS when doing this daytrip. The pass that needs to be crossed with the beautiful landscape around laguna Querococha is part of PN Huascarán.   Even though on this October day it was raining on the Chavin side of the mountains it was a pleasant day trip. For 15 /S you get a ride in Huaraz with Olguita Tours to Chavin de Huantar. It goes every full hour starting at 5 a.m.. It takes about 2,5 hours when all goes fine. The archeological site is at the very south of town

Chankillo Archaeoastronomical Complex

Timonator Germany - 14-Oct-23

Chankillo Archaeoastronomical Complex

The Chankillo astroarcheological complex was a nice trip in the morning with a guide for me in order to see the sun rise between two of the thirteen towers. It's only a WHS since two years and it also feels like it's not that popular yet. Especially compared to other Peru WHS (like Machu Picchu :P). According to the guide there was actually big tourism going on until the pandemic and since then even despite the inscription tourism levels are low. We were for the sunrise for which one specific spots exists actually the only tourists in the whole site. Before we walked up to the towers and had a closer look at them even though there is nothing special to see except stone buildings. For walking up there I highly recommand hiking boots
