Laguna Urus cocha at 4650m, two beautiful, turquoise lakes located in the gorge known as Urus north-east of Huaraz at the height of the valley of  Ishinca and villages  of Collon and Pashpa.

Drive north up to starting point of hike,at the beginning we walk on the same path that takes up to Ishinca valley then make a traverse to the left, continue walking over trail  used by the local people passing through a lot of vegetation of quenual forest, as we gain altitude on the back groung the is  great view of the valley down at the east the Cordillera Negra and in the North and South  side the Cordillera  Blanca.

After hiking for about 3 hours you get the first Urus lake, beautiful green lake surrounded by a lots of quenual trees, have break take some photos, then continue ascending to the second lake, is your chose where you prefer to have lucnh at the first or second lake. We spent time relaxing walking around also if you like fishing you can take fhish line with you, because these lake are filled of trout. Timing about 8-9 hours full day adventure journey.
