Laguna Churup

Our day hike to Laguna Churup helped us acclimatize and prepare for the five day Santa Cruz trek. As we hiked along a ridge to the huge lake, we were completely surrounded by waterfalls, rock faces, and shrubbery. We reached the laguna and stood in awe of a vast glacier in front of us. The scenery was captivating as we ate lunch, reflected on the semester, and took many photos. We then headed back down the ridge to Huaraz, where we packed and prepared for the Santa Cruz trek.
