If you fancy a more remote, less frequented trek, this hike to the Chunta Huanca hill is the trek for you. The starting point of the trek is from the village of Macashca, which is located just 15 kilometres south-east of Huaraz, so more time can be spent hiking outdoors and less on commuting.
This trek is relatively strenuous as it involves a sustained climb of 750m over approximately two to three hours. Nonetheless, it is a good opportunity to acclimatise to your environment quickly.
The summit of Chunta Huanca hill is well characterised by two standing stone fixtures, dating back to the pre-Inca era. You will also enjoy magnificent panoramic views of Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Negra mountain ranges.
