At last: route to Llanganuco and Lag. 69 soon to be improved

I t sounds too good to be true although on the other hand it´s incredible that the road towards the most visited site in Ancash in 2017 is still not paved. In 2013, the former dean of the College of Graduates in Tourism in Ancash, Alejandro Solis Neyra gave an insight into the public investment and profitability of tourist destinations in Ancash such as Caraz, Carhuaz, Yungay, Casma (coastal) and Chimbote (coastal) and Huaraz, as well as a profile of the typical tourist who visits Ancash.

According to Mr. Solis, tourism in Peru should grow in a sustainable way, generating economic and social development within the country, as public resources are used to install, expand, and improve tourism services. To satisfy the visitors’ needs, and in turn improve their experience, we need to offer attractive quality facilities such as tourist information and cultural interpretation services, and safe parking and rest services. Solis also mentioned at least 16 indicators that are vital to generate sustainable development in the tourism sector. One of these indicators is (well-developed) infrastructure and this includes proper access roads to the sights. Interestingly, the two most popular attractions in the Ancash region are the Llanganuco Lakes (together with Laguna 69 that´s on the same route) and the disappearing Pastoruri Glacier and both these places have terrible, unpaved access routes. However, this is soon to be changed at least for one of the two.

On Monday January the 23rd, the Regional Government of Ancash on behalf of governor Enrique Vargas Barrenechea, will start work on the emergency maintenance work of the road that unites Yungay, Llanganuco, Cebollapampa (start of the Laguna 69 trek) and Yanama (start of the famous four day – three nights Santa Cruz trek). The cost of the job is estimated at S/ 1, 520,638.77 soles and includes the cleaning of gutters and drainage of the stretch Llanganuco to the bridge of Llacma. The work is expected to take only 90 calendar days.
