Laguna 69 is a beautiful mountain glacial lake nestled under the mountains in the Demanda Valley. Travel by our private vehicle car from Huaraz to Cebollapampa (3850m) which is the starting point to climb Pisco and Yanappacha. (2½ hours drive). We start the walk by following the valley for some 40 minutes, then climb on a zig zag track for about 1 hour and 40 minutes to Laguna 69, a beautiful lake of the most brilliant blue colour (4500m). The lake is surrounded by the mountains Chacrarju and Pisco which leave reflections on the lake. On the return walk you look directly towards the mountains Huascaran, Chopicalqui and Yanapaccha. On the car journey we stop at the beautiful turquoise and light blue twin lakes of Llanganuco – one lake female and one lake male. The lakes lie between the mountains of Huascaran and Huandoy and are surrounded by groves of ancient quenual trees.
