TRANSPORT OPTIONS - LIMA TO YUNGAY
OPTION A (easiest & best option):
Flatbed Super Cama Night Bus: Lima - Yungay (Movil Tours). Departs Lima (Av. Javier Prado Este 1093, opposite the Clínica Ricardo Palma) at 22:40. This service passes through the second Movil Tours Terminal (Av. Alfredo Mendiola 3893, Los Olivos) nearer Lima Airport at 23:10. Arrives at Yungay at 07:00.
RETURN - Departs Yungay at 9:35pm - Arriving Lima 06.30 aprox
*NOTES: When traveling to Yungay, please make sure to get off the bus in Yungay and NOT HUARAZ.
*NOTE 2: You can board / get off at their LOS OLIVOS terminal if coming from / going to Lima International Airport (Jorge Chavez) as this is MUCH closer.
Recommended Operator: LC PERU
There are currently only flights on Tues, Thurs & Sat, departing from Lima to Anta. Flights take 55mins & cost aprox US $120 return. Pre-arranged taxi pick-up from Anta airport takes 1:30hr & costs S/.160 PEN (2017).
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS OPTION
If you insist using your own transport, you MUST leave Lima by 4am. We highly advise you take a map to get to Yungay & download the Car Travel Directions to get from Yungay to the hotel. Also you can look up LLANGANUCO MOUNTAIN LODGE on google maps, but you must save the map offline. There are no road signs to the hotel, as we pride ourselves on being hidden away. Once you pass Yungay the cell phone reception is increasingly bad, so if you do get lost ask a local for directions to - La Casa de Charlie. If you arrive after dark (18:00) you will NOT find us, but then again, we don´t recommend this option of driving. Please park in indictated areas, not on top of the event.
