A great reward after 2.5/3hr uphill hike. It's pretty high, so you take your time going up, which is fine because scenery and plant life is lovely and you want to take it all in. We were there in June. Quite a few trekkers, but...More

Absolutely stunning! We took a car to the entrance and walked from there. It was absolutely beautiful. A real must-see location. We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed the scenery while we ate. The lake is the most spectacular color of blue I have ever...More

Trekking started at 10am and finished at 4pm. Altitude was from 3900m up to 4600m. I had lucky cause I had coca leaves and made friendship with two girls (south korean and canadian) who had medicine for "soroche", the altitude sickness. The trekking is hard...More

Beautiful - starts flat then up, up then flat again then really UP! Advice: take your time, the altitude is pretty hard work and you'll last longer and avoid headaches/bellyaches/vomiting (ie altitude sickness). If it's sunny you can even swim in the lake at the...More

The lake itself is beautiful though the trek up is hard if you are not used to the altitude. Takes about 3 hours up and 2 hours down. What I would strongly recommend is not going with a tour. Instead commission a private taxi or...More

Wonderfull landscape, a very nice (and rather long/hard) trek but the reward is awesome, at then end (laguna 69) but also all the way (Huascaran, and so on). Taxis from Yungay can easily drop you off (1 hour ride though) and be waiting for you...More

The trip to Laguna 69 in Huascaran National Park is a definite must when staying in or around the Cordillera Blanca Region, but be aware that it can be extremely tough for those not acquainted with the altitude. I organised the tour with the owner...More

I tried to look at doing this trek by staying in yungay but from a logistics perspective the services from huaraz are much better and it was going to be very hard to organise the ongoing bus north as there are no bus company terminals...More

The entire hike is spectacular, at first gradually ascending a valley with spectacular waterfalls, then climing a high headwall to an upper valley before the final ascent to the lake. The hike starts at around 13,000 feet and end at around 15,000, so you need...More
