Black Range

Ancash - Peru

Climbing up from the coast of Ancash the landscape starts changing into the green countryside of the highlands. From the highest pass at 4200 m.a.s.l. a spectular reward appears: the best view of the Cordillera Blanca with snowy peaks of more than 6000 meters, at 5100 m.a.s.l. this is the maximum altitude of this range. In the Cordillera Negra we find Pre-Inka Trails, the tall Puya de Raimondi flower to the north in Winchus Punta and villages like Shupluy and Matacoto with excellent views of Huascaran, the highest peak of Peru.
