Querococha Lagoon and its beautiful landscapes

POSTED ON January 31, 2020 BY Cordillera Viajes

If you like to enjoy beautiful landscapes and eat delicious dishes, then Ancash is the ideal place. Its location surrounded by beautiful snowfall makes its visitors impressed with the image that presents them.

And there are few places that can boast of having that fortune. A great example of the beautiful landscapes it offers is the Querococha Lagoon, which is one of the 400 that the Callejon de Huaylas has.

It is a must-stop for all those who visit the apartment for the first time and also for those who simply want fresh air while traveling to the Chavín de Huántar Complex.


This is located 57 kilometers southwest of Huaraz in the district of Cátac, in the province of Recuay, at an altitude of 3,980 m.a.s.l. The trip takes approximately 1 hour and you can do it by hiring a tour to the archaeological site of Chavín or by car.


This site is ideal for photography lovers since the lagoon is at the foot of a snowy mountain. This presents you with a wonderful scene, also close to it you can see the image of a ‘map of Peru’, which was created naturally.
