Churup Lake is one of the most popular hikes in Cordillera Blanca. It is below Churup Mountain (5,483 m / 17,988 ft.) From Huaraz city, we go on car for about 01 hour and 10 minutes until we get to Pitec. We start hiking up for about 02h and a half in order to get to Churup Lake before getting to the lake we’ll find some fixed ropes which help us to climb up a rock. Once we reach there, we can enjoy beauty of this amazing place. Finally we go back to Pitec and then to Huaraz city by car.
