Getting Here and Around

Most travelers come to Huaraz on an eight-hour bus ride from Lima, though the small airline LC Peru has several flights per week to the area's small airport in Anta, 32 km north of town. Getting around the city is quite easy, as it is small enough to walk almost anywhere. Or, if you've just arrived and are feeling a little breathless from the altitude, take a taxi for S/5. To enjoy any of the nearby treks and sights, hire a guide, as it's not safe to go alone.
