All tours headed towards Laguna 69 stop at this magnificent lake. It is one of the large turquoise coloured lake with picturesque views. I would recommend going to Laguna 69 and seeing this en route

Stunning. The path is well maintained and views beautiful all along. It has a flat path along it for a gentle hike. It's some 20 mins drive from the Llanganuco Mountain lodge, versus 2.5/3 hours from Huaraz or over 1.5 hrs from Yungay. It's a...More

Unless you are mountaineer aware of this world's highest tropical mountain range, you may visit it amidst your archeological sightings, which is what our group did. Our leader quite accurately referred to it as "Heaven's Gate". The colors of the lakes and the unique biodiversity...More

Went here on our way to Laguna 69, took a stop and took some photos. Really beautiful, the water was so blue and pristine, and the high rugged mountains in the background. Well worth the stop.

We visited the lake in September, which is a bit into the off peak season, thankfully there weren't many people around. The colour is simply amazing and the mountains add for a perfect scenery. I didn't give it 5 stars due to the terrible road...More
