Departure: 9:00 a.m. - Return: 7:30 p.m.
Leaving the city of Huaraz (3,100 masl), we pass through the towns of Recuay, Ticapampa and Catac, then we visit the Querococha lagoon (3,950 m).
Continuing, we see a geological formation similar to the map of Peru; then we go through the Kawish Tunnel (4550 m), which crosses the upper part of the Cordillera Blanca, and we go to the Conchucos alley.
Arriving at Chavín, we see the great temple that reflects the greatness of our ancestors. We entered the Archaeological Complex, we observed the Chinchay Shock Stone, the Portal of the Falcónidas, the Circular Plaza and the interior galleries.
In one of these galleries is the famous Monolithic Lanzón or Great Image of the Chavín religion.
Then we observe one of the nail heads in its original place.
After lunch we visit the Chavín National Museum.
Return to Huaraz.
