#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. Planning Huascaran National Park trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
