Situated in the Cordillera Blanca, Huaraz draws outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world to this unique section of the Andes. They arrive on foot, train, bus and apparently, bike, to climb the walls and ski the peaks of the Huascarán National Park. A feast of unique flora, fauna and geological formations, this park was declared a UNESCO Nature World Hertige Site in 1985 after receiving initial protection by the Peruvian government in 1975.
