Description

Have you ever heard of Lagoon 69? It’s one of the most impressive lagoons of the Cordillera Blanca. This time, I want to take you there!

Besides being beautiful, the Lagoon 69 trek is one of the easiest ones in the region. And no matter if it is a cloudy day or the sun shines, its waters are always reflecting an intense blue that will remind you to the Caribbean.

The lake lies in the Llanganuco Valley. Our starting point is at the bottom of the Demanda Valley. The surrounding landscapes of the Lagoon 69 are really breathtaking, with the snow-capped peaks of the Chacraraju, Pisco and Huandoy.

Getting to Laguna 69 will takes us between 3 or 4 hours, depending on your fitness level. On the way, we’ll do some stops so you can admire the landscape as well as some vizcachas hiding behind the rocks. Returning to the starting point will take us other 2 more hours.

During the return, we will have splendid views of the Huascaran, Chopicalqui, Huandoy and Pisco. Furthermore, we can see the Chacraraju and the Yanapacha from a very short distance

This trek to the Lagoon 69 is available from January to December. I can lead large groups of people, up to 20 guests or more. I don’t have an open group yet so I will open a new one when you and your friends book your places. Remember I can also organize private trips upon request.

So, if you’re planning to come to the Cordillera Blanca any time of this year please contact me. Let’s conquer the most beautiful landscapes of this Andean region!
