This beautiful laguna 69 is located in the province of Yungay (Ancash) and is the ideal destination to get to know this long holiday.
The province of Huaraz, located in the department of Ancash, is the favorite destination for lovers of nature, adventure and challenges. In addition, it has many of the most beautiful lagoons in all of Peru. One of them is Laguna 69, a natural paradise that exhibits dream landscapes characteristic of the Andes.
It is called “Laguna 69” because, when the authorities counted the small and large lakes in the region, this number came to him. It is considered a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco, as well as being a Natural World Heritage Site. Its water is fed thanks to the impressive snow-capped Chacraraju, only in the thawing season.
