Published on : Sunday, July 12, 2015

Peru flagHuascaran National Park, located in Ancash region, is expected to welcome over 10,000 tourists during Peru’s National Holidays. 90% of the said expected tourists are Peruvian.

 

The Head of Sernanp (National Service of Natural Protected Areas) Pedro Gamboa did not rule out the amount could increase by 10%, if the government decrees a “long weekend” previous to July 28, Peru’s National Day.

 

“If the government decides to decree July 27 a holiday, the increase in the number of tourists will be exponential […],” he added.

 

In this sense, Gamboa revealed each year this park receives more than 150 (Peruvian and foreign) tourists every day. During the following months: July, August and September most tourists come from European countries.

 

The admission price is S/.10.00 (about US$3.17). Nonetheless, those who desire to go climbing must pay a fee of S/.60.00 (about US$19.04), so they can access the natural protected area snow-capped mountains.

 

Gamboa said ticket prices are “very generous” and therefore not as expensive, if compared to those offered in other countries. In this sense, he mentioned Argentina’s Aconcagua Natural Reserve, which fee totals an average €50.00.

 

 
Tickets to other natural protected areas will be sold by enterprise Teleticket, he added.

 

Likewise, the Sernanp official said tourists will soon be able to download an app, which will serve as a “miniguide” to every natural protected area and will be called “Perú Natural”.

 

Today, Huascaran National Park celebrates its 40th anniversary. Therefore, a book called “40 años del Parque Nacional Huascaran” (40 years of Huascaran National Park) will be presented at the Centro Cultural Huaraz located in Lima.
