Mount Mururaju is situated in the little-known Raria Valley in the southern section of the Cordillera Blanca, 65km southeast of Huaraz. This beautiful peak is rarely climbed, despite offering superb mountain vistas. The 360º views from the summit are spectacular, rewarding the climber with a panorama of the Cordillera Huayhuash clearly visible to the south, the Cordillera Huallanca to the east, the Cordillera Negra to the west, and the Cordillera Blanca stretching away to the north. As few people make the ascent of Mururaju, chances are you will enjoy the views in complete peace and serenity.
