Welcome to Llamac


There are few services here, though there’s a small Plaza de Armas with a diminutive church draped in bougainvillea. The trail leading to Laguna Yahuacocha sits behind the municipal building on the same plaza.

There is a S20 entry fee for foreigners to enter Huayhuash, the first in the fee circuit. You will be expected to pay even if just passing through on the bus – hold on to your receipt to avoid paying again when you finish your trek.
