This is a really beautiful location. Turquoise Lake surrounded by high mountain scenery. Great, flat walk align the south side. Well worth the 1 and 1/2 dirt road ride from Caraz. We hired a private taxi for 100 soles, roundtrip including two hours of waiting. Have lived in Alaska for 40 years. Have seen a lot of beautiful lakes. This one is up there. Don't miss.

Travel agency and Tour Operator, Caraz-based since 1994, never ending exploring our Mountains, happy to help you discover and enjoy, small groups, custom and taylor-made trips.
I booked a 5-day Santa Cruz trek with Pony's and found them to be an informative guide to the region, with a well-stocked shop/travel office (simple but tasty café upstairs), and a wealth of local guides and contacts. Alberto, the manager and a long-term resident of Caraz, was an excellent guide for the beginning of our time in the region, and personally took us up to Lake 69 for the first day of the trek. His English is excellent and he has lots of absorbing tales of the area. When my dad fell ill from altitude, he packed up camp late at night and drove us back to Caraz, rearranging our trek plans for just one person.
Once I started the Santa Cruz trek, I found the equipment to be more than adequate, with clean and warm tents/.sleeping bags, sturdy hiking poles and some excellent meals prepared by the guide, Jorge Martel, one of the region's most recognised guides and mountain climbers. He was warm and adaptable throughout the trek, and knew anything there was to know about the Mountains and ecology of Peru. Once the trek was over, he arranged transfer back to Caraz.
It is important to remember that the center of operations is based in Caraz, not Huaraz. There is very little to see and do here, and facilities/hotels/restaurants are basic. Some popular tours of the region are more difficult to arrange from here (Chavin, Pastoruri) and in low season, there is no guarantee that there will be a group departing. This is my main criticism of Pony's Expeditions. When my dad fell ill, and could no longer join me on the trek, he was stuck in Caraz for 4 days, with absolutely nothing to do. Alberto had told us that he could do some tours of the area on his days off, but when my dad went to sign up for some, he was told that it would not be possible, as there was nobody to operate the tour. Do not promise something if you are unable to go through with it! This was disappointing.
However, if you want to avoid the bustle of Huaraz and arrange a reliable and enjoyable trek further afield, Pony's is a great option!

Was really interesting to discover in this museum the WORLD LITTLEST MUMMY!
Also we discovered a lot of thing about pre inca civilization Wari some special objects like calculators, weapons,musical instruments. We saw also othr mummies and deformed skulls.
The guide CARLOS was fantastic. He is the same person who organized the museum and doing research about pre inca civilization.
ALL THIS FOR FREEEEEEEE!
Highly reccomend the visit that during about 1.30hour. The museum is open untill 7 pm.

Laguna Grande is a highlight of the second day of trekking. It's torquoise waters are a welcomed relief from some near desert like conditions before and after you pass it. Three or four hours walk from Llama Coral.
es una laguna de paisaje agradeble, excelente para alejarse del bullicio de la ciudad y relajarse tomando fotos o caminando con la familia o amigos. se requiere movilidad o contratar una agencia especifica que los traslade hasta ahi.

Competitive prices, incredible service, safe driving, good person My group of three backpackers ran into Victor, the owner of Turismo Exploring Peru, at the end of our 4 day Santa Cruz Trek when we entered the town of Vaquería. He was dropping off a group...MoreThank you very much my friends

Admittedly these ruins located just outside the town of Caraz are very small and little is known about them, but the location is great with wonderful views of the Cordillera Blanca and Negra.
The ruins are extremely old, dating back to 2500 BC, and are thought to be a ceremonial centre. Tumshukaiko is a Quechua word meaning "here in the centre".

Beau mirador donnant une très belle vue sur la ville de Caraz. Pour trouver le chemin monter la rue San Martin et demandé votre chemin car il n’y a pas d’indications pour s’y rendre a part le début de sentier. Compter 25 à 30 minutes pour monter en haut !
