  • We didn't see any more of it. Interesting is the statue of Jesus Christ that there is and the view to Huascarán.

  • Despite the history of this place, the magical landscape of Yungay captivates, a place to visit and take a walk through the holy countryside

  • These people suffered so much from the massive avalanche that so many people lost their lives. There is some little restaurant that have really good food. You do need 1/2 soul for the bathroom. The views are breath taking and the gift shops there have really reasonable prices. There are some poor people in the area that will ask for money and remember to be picky to who you give money to. Bring lots of water.
  • Having the feeling of standing above more than 25000 lost lifes.... is quite unsettling and makes you feel so sorry for the tragedy that occured here 48 years ago
