Water Body Nature / Park
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.

  • The biggest reason why would return to huaraz is by its beautiful lagoon Yanganuco, no matter the altitude or the cold. Magical! The tours are super comfortable, Huaraz is one of the cheaper tourist sites of the Peru.

  • This is a walk Light and beautiful! We were in two families with children and the family with a son a year ago was in this laguna while we did the walk from laguna 69 which is in the same entry. This tour who goes on tour is done in conjunction with a gazebo to other lagoons where this mirante our friends saw snow even in December.
