Since old times, the majesty of the glaciers of the cordillera blanca has constituted a great mystery for the Andean populations that have always considered them sacred places, home of the gods and scenery of fantastic legends. Climbing toward the glaciers can be found many ” huacas”, that are remains of the pre-Columbian cultures; they were used as ceremonial center to worship nature and give thanks to the gods. Especially near the CONTRAHIERBA hut you can admire the reconstruction of an archaeological site and relive the history of the place
