The Rough Guide to Peru picks LLanganuco on list 28 things not to miss

The Rough Guide to Peru was published in October 2015 and is written by authors Kiki Deere, Anna Kiminski, Phillip Tang and Greg de Villiers. According to its website it covers the country in-depth from the jawdropping attractions of the Macchu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon to Lima’s endlessly hip restaurant scene. Rough Guides’ four expert authors have covered every inch of Peru, communing with Amazon shamans, rafting the waters of the mighty Urubamba and hiking to the little-visited Inca ruins of Choquequirao and there is also attention for the Huaraz area.

Huaraz, the cordilleras and the Ancash coast are listed as chapter six in the book and obviously there is much attention for the hiking in our region. On the author´s 28 things not to miss list there is a mention for the Llanganuco lakes which are described as ¨part of the Huascarán National Park, these pristine turquoise and emerald blue lagoons are hidden in a glacial valley in the Cordillera Blanca.¨ Also not to miss according to the four expert authors of The Rough Guide to Peru is The Cordillera Blanca mountain range that offers some of the best hiking and climbing in South America (17). The archeological complex of Chavín the Huantar is listed 21st between the zigzag megalithic defensive walls of Sacsayhuaman in Cusco and the frenetic floating jungle port of Puerto Belén. As expected, the mysterious citadel of Machu Picchu tops the list.

The Rough Guide to Peru counts with over 70 clear, full-colour maps to help travelers find a hostel while the easy-to-use transport info will make sure one doesn´t end up on a chicken bus to nowhere. The guide is available on Amazon for U$ 16.90 or US$ 15.99 as an E-book version.
