Lagunas de Llanganuco, Huascaran National Park

4.8
#4 of 9 in Things to do in Huascaran National 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.

    Of all the lagoons is easier to access. Comes with car up close by is the lagoon so it is ideal for those who want to enjoy nature without a great physical effort.

    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.
