Amidst the high Andean pastures and cropfields that make up the department of Ancash, one can almost always find a small church or village of red-tiled roofs with a fragrance of freshly-baked bread on the air. These are the everyday wonders of the Peruvian Andes. There, in all its ancient glory, lies the Callejon de Huaylas.
Ancash is a vast department that includes not only the highlands, but also stretches as far as the coast where one can find cities like the fishing port of Chimbote or Casma, a tranquil town by the shores of the Pacific. Possibly Ancash's geographic and climactic diversity has made it one of Peru's premier tourist destinations.
