Lagunas de Llanganuco, Huascaran National Park

4.9
#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.

  • Went here on our way to Laguna 69, took a stop and took some photos. Really beautiful, the water was so blue and pristine, and the high rugged mountains in the background. Well worth the stop.  more »

  • A simply beautiful place. It is a great gift of nature with which it has blessed our territory. It has incredible views and landscapes that do not fit into our eyes. A turquoise lagoon, the nine of the cordillera blanca, the rugged Rocky Mountains, the river and the large amount of green; everything is attached in a Masterful show of nature. A place so incredible that from some banks, escape on behalf of laguna and even seems to a beach in the Caribbean, with its small wavelets (look at the photos I took).
