Highlights

  • Visit the famous, beautiful Laguna 69.
  • Enjoy a thrilling 100 meter rappelling experience.
  • See the glory of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru.

Description

For approximately 4 to 5 hours, I would like to take you hiking around the beautiful Laguna 69 (4,650m). Furthermore, I would also like to give you the chance to enjoy approximately 30 minutes of thrilling rappelling in the same area as well!

Located in the Huascaran National Park in Peru, Laguna 69 is a glimmering, gorgeous bright blue lagoon. Like an oasis in the midst of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range, this lagoon is a fantastic place to visit, see, explore and enjoy.

The trip will begin in the beautiful city of Huaraz. From there, early in the morning, at approximately 6:00 am, we will make our way through the Callejon de Huaylas and the Valle de Rio Santa between the Cordillera Negra and Blanca to the Huascaran National Park. We will also pass some small, lovely towns, including Monterrey, which have some comfortable thermal baths.

Throughout the hike, you will get to see some glorious natural scenery. And once we reach the Laguna 69, you will get plenty of time to admire it, while taking all of the photos you want. Afterwards, you will get to enjoy a 100 meter repel, where you can cap off the trip with some excitement. Finally, we will return to Huaraz, where you can enjoy some delicious local cuisine and a delectable Pisco Sour.

Visiting the Laguna 69 is an unforgettable experience. And the hike to get there is one of the most scenic in the entire area. And when you add on a short, but fun rappelling experience, you have the makings of a great adventure. So send me a request, come to Huaraz, and let the adventure begin.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
