  • Excellent hike and incredible landscape. Travel to Huaraz and make the lagoon route is very fun.

  • This trekking route is essential if you are in the area of the National Park of Huascaran. It is a very demanding but very pleasant route, we enjoyed the landscape, is an incomparable frame where travel passes, but the requirement of their climbs makes it a hard and demanding tour. Advisable to go well prepared (liquids, food and chewing coca leaves). If you can enjoy the landscape during its travel, can not imagine what is enjoyed at the lagoon. It is an ecstasy of happiness to achieve your goal (la laguna), beautiful landscape and the beauty of the location in which the lagoon is located. It madruga, comes out at 5 in the morning and walk about an hour along flat terrain and then about two hours (at a good pace) zig-zag of demanding ascent. The entrance to the Park are 10 Suns and the excursion depends on the Agency with which you purchase it (40-60 soles). It is an unforgettable trekking route, if you like nature and walk don't hesitate to do it, although it is hard can be completed normally and is an experience that is priceless
