  • One of the most amazing places I've ever been to in my life. And without a shadow of a doubt the hardest thing I've ever done too! The trail is not heavy, but the altitude makes it something incredibly difficult. But in the end it's all worth it with this laguna which is something from another world. The trail itself is also beautiful, with amazing views to me and even a few waterfalls along the way. Sensational! If you have a good physical preparamento I advise you make!

  • To arrive at 69 you have to be in good shape. Are 6:00 of track and half of this time on climbs, with altitude making even more. The pond is beautiful, and the way idem with waterfalls, rivers and mountains.

  • I had no idea it would be so hard the trail up to 69. I took along my husband 6 hours there and back ... but the altitude hurts and the trail of rocks requires a lot of attention. The pond is beautiful!!!

  • This is a must if you love trekking. The view is spectacular! You need to do it no questions ask.
  • What a spectacular hike! Everywhere you look is gorgeous. The hike isn't too strenuous unless you're feeling the affects of the altitude. It takes about two hours to get up to the lake and there's plenty of places to escape from the majority of the other hikers. Try to go early because once the busses arrive there are a ton of people on the trail.
  • Absolutely stunning views of Luguna 69. The hike itself can be a little strenuous but if you take your time, you can easily make it. It also starts off a little boring if you've seen other spectacular sites in Peru. Once you start acceding, it is so worth it! The path itself is very clear and there are so many people doing it that you'll have a hard time getting lost.
  • The trek is unbelievablely beautiful. You just have to do it. No questions asked. Don't read to much into articles about how tough it is. Take the guided tour and just go for it. You will find heaven.
  • Stunning lake and a lovely walk up to it. I can also recommend the santa cruz loop if in the area
