From the Pacific Ocean to highest Peaks of Peru, a land of hidden treasures
Ancash means “blue” in Quechua and it is the region with the widest geographical diversity in Peru, located just 300 km north of Lima, the capital of the country. It is a unique destination in Peru because from the shores at the coast of the Pacific Ocean, where you can enjoy delicious seafood dishes, explore its fascinating beaches, observe glacier rivers descend into fertile valleys surrounded by a desert of enigmatic sand dunes that were once home of the Ancient Sechin. We can climb up towards the most valuable and precious treasure of the country, the highest tropical perpetual glaciers of the planet with more than 6000 m.a.s.l, which descend down to the shores of Marañon River in the central jungle of Peru. The Cordillera Blanca (White Range) glaciers are a solid water source that nourish the largest lungs of the Earth, the Amazon Rainforest, but sadly are shrinking dramatically. Are we the human beings going to be able to reverse the process? Is this your last chance to witness the impressive remains of the last Ice Age? Don’t wait until it´s too late; don’t watch the movie, live it for real.
