Huaraz, Peru (map)
After the airlines delivered our bags to us in Lima (sea level) we caught the next 8 hour night bus to Huaraz and found ourselves a little light headed at over 10,400 ft. Huaraz is the closest town you can bus to outside the Huascaran National Park and a perfect place to spend a few days acclimating before heading up to higher levels.
A big part of our time traveling is spent researching where we are heading next , how we are getting there, where we will stay once we arrive, and what we will be doing. A large part of how we figure this out is by reading other travelers blogs and seeing what they did. Since our blog posts don’t focus much on this we have created a new page to help future travelers.
