Laguna Paron

5/5
2 Reviews
Lake
Open Open 24 hours
Address: Huascaran National Park | Cordillera Blanca, Caraz, Peru

What people are saying:

Palen Lake: The most beautiful lake I have ever visited. Although the road is long, the gravel road that rises from 2500 altitudes to 4200 meters is very dangerous and bumpy. It takes 1 hour and 45 minutes to drive. The beautiful scenery along the way is endless, and it is black when it is near the lake. The granite mountain has iceberg waterfalls. You can see many snow-capped mountains of Huascaran on the way from Huaraz to the attraction. In particular, you can see the highest peak in Peru at 6,800 meters, the North and South Twin Peaks of Huascaran. Along the way, I passed three small towns in the valley, stopping one for each round trip. The ice cream was delicious.

    Very Nice!

    A great short hike and spectacular views! Worth going to check out for sure. It's much easier leaving from Caraz too.
