Huaraz city will be your base to access any mountain in the Cordillera Blanca, used to be a quite town, not any more since some years ago big mining companies have started operations in the area bringing a huge change in the town, lot of new trucks, bars and all the noise that could be good and fun for miners, but not for climbers.
