  • Visit the lagoon 69 is a challenge that is worth much. It is possible to reach the Huscarán National Park on your own, it is however normally from Huaraz.El travel car city is 2 to 3 hours from Huaraz to the lagoons of Yanganuco, where begins the walk up to the lagoon, this will take approx. 3 hours more. The road is demanding but with very good landscapes of snowcapped mountains and natural waterfalls that form. Turquoise Blue Lagoon is the best reward, and you certainly won't be disappointed.
