Traveler Reviews

    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.
