Laguna 69

About the Trek
This beautiful lake is located at the base of the Chacraraju Mountain (6,100 m), which is one of the most beautiful and most difficult mountains to climb in the Cordillera Blanca. The trek also offers great views of other mountains such as Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Yanapaqcha and Pisco. On the way up to the lake you will encounter a variety of flora, waterfalls and other small lakes. The trek is considered slightly difficult due to its high altitude (4,650 m). You can follow the clearly marked trail to the lake, or you can arrange to go with one of our guides.
