Huaraz is a city in Peru’s northern Callejón de Huaylas valley. Capital of the Ancash Region, the city sits more than 3,000 meters above sea level, with the snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca range forming its dramatic eastern skyline. Encompassing much of the Cordillera Blanca is Huarascán National Park, home to Andean condors and jaguars as well as Peru’s tallest mountain, Huarascán.
