Printed edition of July 2017 a bit delayed but these are our topics

W e would like to inform our faithful followers and readers that the production of the July edition is a bit delayed and that its printed editions are expected to be in Huaraz in the beginning of next week. The July edition will count with 24 pages of information on treks, climbs and updated tourist information but it will also offer a couple of interesting interviews that we have conducted the past months.

In the July 2017 edition, we have the following articles on offer:

César Morales (93) explains how in 1966, Alpamayo got nicknamed ´The most beautiful mountain in the world´

The Huaraz Telegraph spoke with the first conqueror of the Mont Blanc in France and found out some very interesting facts. Mr. Morales had a prime role in the fact that Alpamayo got nicknamed as the most beautiful mountain in the world. And being a former journalist for El Comercio, Mr. Morales has also published a couple of books on mountaineering. What is his opinion on mountaineering nowadays and what are the main differences when mountaineering was practiced back in the ´old´ days.

Víctor Rímac from Huaraz on top of the world

We spoke with the hottest prospect in mountaineering in Huaraz just a couple of weeks after his summit on Mount Everest. Víctor spoke about fame and ego and the importance of his feat for other youngsters who practice mountaineering. Furthermore Víctor revealed that before setting foot on Everest, he carried the lifeless body of his idol Ueli Steck, who lost his life in the same area. Víctor had met Steck earlier in 2014 and described that moment as meeting Maradona or Messi. However, his second encounter affected his stay in Nepal.

The lost destination of the rock forest of Hatun Machay

During the past months we have published on the happenings in and around the rock forest of Hatun Machay because only a mere two years ago, the rock forest located in the Cordillera Negra between Huaraz and Lake Conococha, used to be a very popular rock climbing, hiking, historical and cultural paradise. What has happened? The Huaraz Telegraph has reconstructed the happenings in chronological order and will present a summary of these happenings in the past and current situation in Hatun Machay. Sadly, we have come to the conclusion that it is not safe for tourists to visit Hatun Machay

The Peruvian Dream

In our nineteenth version of the Peruvian Dream we have interviewed one of the two Dutch people living in Huaraz. A mere 10 years ago, there were around eight Dutch living in Huaraz (including some long-term volunteers) but at the moment, our editor and our interviewee are the only ones. Who is this person and what would he think about the city and more importantly, what would he do if he were to become mayor of Huaraz one day?

This and much more in the July edition of The Huaraz Telegraph
