Yanama is situated close to the Huascaran National Park and is four hours from the city of Huaraz. It can be reached by public transport or by taxi, both of which we can arrange for guests. The road to Yanama gives views of the Cordillera Blanca including Huascaran, Peru's highest mountain, and later passes through the Huascaran National Park with its beautiful glacial lakes and stunning mountain scenery.
There are four ways to reach Yanama:
1. Take a direct bus from Huaraz to Yanama (four hours).
2. Take a combi (minivan) from Huaraz to Yungay (one hour) and from Yungay take another combi to Yanama (three hours).
