Lagunas de Llanganuco, Huascaran National Park

(4.8/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Hike to the high altitudes of the Cordillera Blanca and see Lagunas de Llanganuco. Mountains engulf the dazzling turquoise lake, nestled in between a valley. Take a boat and paddle around the lake or simply follow the path hugging the waters edge. Pick up some food from nearby stalls and bring it to have a picnic. At 3,850 m (12,631 ft) above sea level, the lake sits 26 km (16 mi) northeast of Yungay, but it will take a good ninety minutes to reach by bus or truck. Take a look at our Huascaran National Park family vacation planner to schedule your visit to Lagunas de Llanganuco and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Despite the difficulties in finding the site, motivated the poor tourist information and warnings of this nature, reach the Llanganuco Lake is worth since it is a spectacular place where you can appreciate the greatness of the creator. The blue turquezza of the Lake, water from melting glaciers product, lends an effect magic to the place, which can be reached by an unpaved road something difficult to travel in winter...
