PARON LAKE : Lake Paron 4185masl is the largest lake in the cordillera blanca, on the Peruvian Andes, 32km east from the city Caraz. Its nested and surrounded by several snow peaks such as Aguja I 5840masl, Aguja II 5888masl, Caraz I 6025masl, Caraz II 6020masl, Caraz III 5720masl, Artesonraju 6.025, Paria 5600masl, Pyramid 5885masl, Chacraraju West 6112masl, Chacraraju West 6356masl, Pisco 5772masl, Huandoy East 6000masl, Huandoy North 6395masl, and Huandoy West 6356masl, its one of the most popular areas for climbing in Peru, including the so famous the Sphinx 5325masl a granite monolith, offering at least 13 big wall routes.
The Paron lake formed as a natural reservoir has a catchment area of 44.3km2, it is 3.7km long from east to west and average of 7000m width from north to south, the original depth was about 75m, but today the level was lowered 15m to prevent the collapse of the moraine, the water from the lake was formerly used for the canon del pato hydroelectric scheme, since 29 july 2008, this condition has ceased. The lake itself is within the borders of the Huascaran National Park. The water level is controlled by a tunnel and underwarter gate, to keep water level at 4155masl aiming a double objective to prevent the overflow and the resulting risk for the downstream population and to manage the river discharge.
The high concentrations of sissolved lime give the ater of Paron lake a turquoise color. It’s a popular day hike for those willing to acclimatize or even ride a Mountain Bike downhill (there is almost 2000m drop to caraz). Its possible to camp on the west and east shores and from the east end, an easy walk can lead to the impressive Pyramid (the Paramount Pictures Logo)
