Huaraz, a city in the heart of Cordiliera Blanca at an altitude greater than 3000 meters, is in my travel bucket list because from what I hear, the surrounding region is a trekker's paradise. Trekking or biking through that breathtaking mountain scenery would be awesome and this area is less touristy than famous trekking locations like the Inca trail.
