Ice Cream Central

Carhuaz Ice Cream List

Only 35km (22 miles) from Huaraz, Carhuaz is the second largest town in the Callejón de Huaylas. You’ll stop here for ice cream if you take a tour to Parón Lake.

If you’re going to climb Mateo, Carhuaz is where you’ll head up into the mountains. This is also where you’ll get transportation to Catay for a hike up to Auquiscocha. Tours to Cancaraca usually have a stop in Carhuaz for ice cream as well.
