Located 4650 meters above sea level at the foot of the Chacararaju Glacier, Laguna 69 can be said to be one of the prettiest lakes in the Cordillera Blanca. Join us on a full day Laguna 69 trek, as we bring you to see this wonder.
Laguna 69 is one of the more than 400 lakes that form part of the Huascaran National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site. But why Laguna 69? The name was due to the fact that some lakes in Huascaran National Park did not have names before the park Peruwas created in 1975, but the need to include all the lakes into a list forced authorities to give a number-based names to those without a traditional name.
Today, Laguna 69 is one of the more important tourist destinations of the region, visited mainly by fans of hiking and mountaineering, given the simple access and the spectacular scenery. For this trek, you will leave Huaraz in the direction of the city called Yungay, 55km north of Huaraz. You will start hiking from Cabollapampa (3900 meters above sea level), and will take approximately 3 to 4 hours to reach the laguna where you will stay for around an hour before heading back down and returning to Huaraz. On the return trip, you will also have splendid views of snowcapped Mount Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Huandoy and Pisco, Mount Chacraraju and Yanapacha.
