One of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen! The trek wasn’t too easy and you need to get used to the high altitude first. About 75% of the way is about 50 degrees inclination and the rest is 75 degrees, so it’s pretty steep. The lagoon is super blue and of course it makes you want to jump in, but no one is allowed to. To get to almost to the top, you can ride a horse too.
