    Te recogen del hotel a las 5.00 a.m. toman la ruta hacia la Laguna de Llanganuco, pasas las dos Lagunas Chinancocha y Orconcocha, que quiere decir Lagunas Hembra y Macho. Recorres por toda la orilla, es un bello paisaje, llegas a Cebollapampa (Pampa de Cebolla) a partir de ese lugar empieza la caminata, tienes que estar en forma, no recuerdo si el recorrido de ida y vuelta es 7 kilómetros o 14; el problema es que hay que subir y subir, te cansas, antes pasas por una laguna negra y al llegar a la última subida, te encuentras con una maravilla, todo sacrificio valió la pena, que hermosa laguna de color azul debajo del nevado, es un sueño les recomiendo ir, si tuviera oportunidad de hacerlo otra vez lo haría.

    Si te gusta el trekking disfrutando de hermosos paisajes, este es un destino para ti. La laguna es muy hermosa y valen la pena las tres horas en bus para llegar hasta el punto donde inicia la caminata. Además esta la laguna de Llanganuco, parada obligatoria del bus durante las tres horas de traslado previo a la caminata, un lugar hermoso también. Yo hice la camina en 2 horas 45 y eso que no lo hago continuamente, pero sí suelo hacer algo de ejercicio y me preparé un poco mas semanas previas. Además me ayuda siempre masticar un poco de hoja de coca, que alivia el mal de altura y contrarresta el agotamiento. Yo la mastico por lo menos desde una hora previa a iniciar el trekking y de igual forma consumo una o dos buenas barras de chocolate y eso me ayudo a no parar en los ascensos. Recomiendo también partir temprano para iniciar la camina no mas alla de 8:30 am. ya que el sol luego agota demasiado. Recomiendo hacer el trekking al segundo o tercer día de estar en Huaraz, para que se aclimaten un poco.

    The trip is fine if you are experienced hiker. The tour operator basically provide you the transportation to and from the Lake 69 trailhead from Huaraz. Other than that you are pretty much on your own. The picked up about 30 people from various hotels in Huaraz in early morning around 0545 at our hotel. It took about 30-40 minutes to get everyone. At about 07:00 the bus stopped at a small coffee shop for a brief rest. We arrived at trailhead at about 09:30. Hiking to Lake 69 from trailhead took between 2 and 3 hours. The bus is scheduled to leave the trailhead at about 15:50. So make sure you come back before the bus' departure time. The road between trailhead and Yungay is unpaved and is very dusty. Unfortunately, the bus driver is extremely stingy who refuse to turn on A.C. when so we have to open windows to avoid being baked inside the bus temperature can quickly climbs to over 95F in less than 10 minutes if all windows were closed. This would be okay on paved road. However, on unpaved road everyone was tortured by a constant bombardment of dust for about 90 minutes. Overall, the scenery is incredible but the trip is terrible.
