Brief

The Lake 69, located at 4600m/15,092ft.lies just at the flank of The Pisco and Chacraraju Mountain. This is one of the most beautiful aqua colored glacial lakes in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. Considered by most Guides as one of the most impressive scenic day hikes in the entire Huascaran Nationa Park. It is truly a very unique and special place. On clear days you can look straight through its deep blue color waters, there is an incredible waterfall dropping right into the far end of the lake that makes amazing scenery to enjoy.
Hiking in the Andes is transcendent and eternal, infectious and convincing that you chose a true “national geographic” adventure experience.

Pre-hiking Briefing: The guide will meet you the day before departure in Huaraz to do a full gear check and finalize last minute details.

Start: 5:20 to 5:40am Huaraz
