Quechuandes  00534868

With its crystalline azure waters and unparalleled location at the foot of the the impressive glacier of Mount Chacraraju (6112m), Lake 69 is on of the most stunning lakes in the Cordillera Blanca. 

The hike to this jewel of the Andes, which is located at 4550m above sea level, starts from a beautiful small valley known as Cebollapampa, situated just beyond the Llanganuco Lakes and surrounded by many of the White Range's highest and most impressive summits. Hikers are rewarded with some of the best views of Mount Chacraraju, Huascaran North (6655m) and South (6768m), Chopicalqui (6354m), Huandoy (6395m), Yanapaccha (5460m) and Pisco (5752m). An extraordinary variety of exotic tropical plants are encountered along the way, and if you are lucky you might spot the rabbit-like viscacha.

This is one of the most rewarding hikes in the region and is ideal for acclimatisation.
