Laguna 69 (1 day)

[widgetkit id="5" name="laguna 69"]Distance: 12 km

Altitude: 3900m to 4600m Rating: moderate

This is the most popular of the one day hikes around Huaraz with some of the most impressive scenery to be found in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. Lake 69 with its waterfall is one of the most famously beautiful turquoise glacial lakes in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. During the tour, you will also see the Llanganuco lakes, and have excellent views of the mountains Chacraraju (6112m), Pisco (5752m) and Yanapacha (5460m). This hike is also a good choice for those who wish to acclimatize to the altitude before the Santa Cruz trek.


Our bus picks you up in Huaraz around 5:30 a.m. and takes you to the trail head at Cebollapampa (3900m). This is a 3h drive (breakfast possibility in Yungay along the way), including a stop at the Huascaran National Park Office to register and pay the entrance fee. The hike itself is 5-6 hours, depending on your fitness level. You will return to Huaraz around 6 p.m.


The weather up there can change quickly-be prepared for heat, sun, rain and cold. Good hiking shoes, water, and sunscreen are recommended.

Also be sure to bring your passport number for registration at the national park office.
