Reserva Nor Yauyos-Cochas

Nature Reserve in Jauja

A huge, iconic Andean smorgasbord of glimmering blue-green mountain lakes nestled within towering peaks and home to the Pariacaca Glacier. You’ll need your own 4WD vehicle (rent one in Lima or Huancayo) to get there.

The entrance, 40km (45 minutes' drive) west of Jauja on the Lima road, is at Pachacayo.
