Laguna 69 Day Trek

3 reviews
Beginning easy, this beautiful trek passes by alpine meadows and beside a river. The trail then ascends up along switchblades to reveal majestic waterfalls and streams.<br><br>You'll enjoy views of two smaller lakes before your final ascent up the valley. After a steep incline up the mountain, you'll finally reach the renowned azure waters of laguna 69!

Absolutely breathtaking! We bought our tour on Denomades but the agency that took us there was Golden Expeditions, so it might be better to buy directly from them. Comfortable van with about 12 tourists plus 2 staff. You need to prepare for this trip, do drink coca mate/tea since days before (it stimulates you so don’t take at night). Start your trip in Cusco for some days so you begin getting adjusted to the height. We did and never felt sick, only a little short breathed after physical effort. Do place the coca leaves in your mouth once you get to the glacier, it will help you with the upwards long walk. You don’t chew, just leave them between your teeth and cheek. On your way there van will stop at a small town restaurant to get snacks and place your order for lunch on your way back. You’ll not be sure you’ll want to eat here since it’s not an “urban” area, DO eat here! It turned out to be our best meal in Huaraz. Surprisingly well organized, amazing food taste-presentation-amount-quality. We sincerely congratulated the owner. On your way to Pastoruri you’ll enjoy amazing views and make very short stops at sparking water and many colors small lake (5 min each). When you get to Pastoruri do get the horse ride for the half way to the glacier, it’s not about being fit enough but the height that makes any effort much harder. The glacier is amazing! So beautifull! Also the lakes and mountains. It’s sad to know that it probably won’t be there in 10 years due to global warming, you literally see it melting like rain inside the cave under it. It’s not easy to get to Huaraz but it’s absolutely worth it after seeing Pastoruri, Llanganuco and Yungay (Campo Santo).

Short hike to the glacier. You can see by maps.me how much it’s melted. Still a great sight with reflections in the lakes around. The tour which most hostels offer which another tour group runs is a bit disappointing. Does it job getting there and back. But on the way back they stop for “lunch” at 5ish for 45mins. Even though you get told to take your lunch. What makes it worst is it’s only about 35 mins away from Huaraz which was frustrating just so the driver and guide could get a free feed I am guessing. Aswell local tourists didn’t seem to care about the no trespassing signs and where touching and grabbing chunks of ice then throwing them on the ground... maybe some of the reason it’s disappearing.

An hour plus bumpy dirt road leads you to a literally breathless 45-min trail that takes you to the glacier. The glacier and lake are gorgeous and well worth the drive. Visit it before it is gone however as the glacier is literally melting before your eyes. I was shocked at how rapid the melting was, water droplets and small pieces constantly falling off during my hour at the summit.

It's an only 1-hour walk but in an over 5000-meter high. Be aware to feel bad for the altitude sickness. Slow down your steps and walk there is better than rushing up. The tour price from the center Huaraz to there is around 30 soles (tour) + 30 soles (entrance fee for the national park.)
