The East of Ankash is a zone near the Cordillera Blanca mountain range in the Ancash region of Peru.[1] The valley is the home of the archaeological site of the remains of Chavín de Huantar, which dates from the year 900, and was a ceremonial center in which human sacrifices were made.[2]

Tourist Aspect[edit]

Besides the archaeological ruins of Chavín de Huantar that are permanently visited by students and foreign tourists, the East of Ankash has a lot of attractions that nature has given it, such as its thermo-medicinal waters, beautiful scenery, hunting places, and archaeological places that fascinated Julio C. Tello and other specialists.
