Pastoruri Glacier and Puya Raimondi

About the Trip
The Pastoruri Glacier and Puya Raymondi trip is a full day tour which offers a great opportunity for a close up view of the Pastoruri glacier, located at 5240m in altitude, you need to be somewhat acclimatized before going (we recommend to spend at least a day in Huaraz first). Because this is one of the easiest snowcapped peaks to reach, it is a very well-known destination of the region, located 50 miles / 80 km/south of Huaraz.
This trip is combined with a visit to the valley of Carpa to the south of Huaraz, where the Puya de Raimondi plant grows. These strange plants, looking more like mutated cacti, are actually the largest member of the bromeliad family (relative of the pineapple). This species can be found in only a few isolated areas of the Andes. The plant usually blooms in the month of May, and if you are lucky enough to witness this event, it's an unbelievable sight set against a spectacular snowy mountain back-drop.
