1. From Huaraz: Chavín de Huantar & Chavín Museum Day Trip
After an early morning pickup from your hotel, depart from Huaraz southeast of Callejón de Huaylas. Along the way, you'll travel via the intriguing cities of Recuay, Ticapampa, and Catac. Next, enter the National Park Huascarán and arrive at the Laguna de Querococha which is 3980 meters above sea level. Spend some much-needed break time here and take in the views. You'll have around 20 minutes to snap some photos and admire the scenery. Continue on to cross the Cordillera Blanca range through the Cahuish tunnel before entering the valley of Conchucos. Pass through Tambillos and the villages of Kercos, Machac, and the contemporary town of Chavín, located on the plush banks of the river Mosna. Enjoy lunch in Chavin, if the private option is selected, overlooking the unique landscape. Then, arrive at the Archaeological Monument of Chavín, called "Cultural Heritage of Humanity". This fascinating monument is the oldest stone structure in Peruvian culture. Finally, wander around the Chavin Museum, where your guide will take you through the many archaeological pieces on show. After your day of sightseeing, leave for Huaraz at around 3:00 PM in order to make it back by 07:30 PM.
