Cordillera Blanca

3 Nights

Offering glaciers, scenic lakes and dramatic snow-capped mountains, the Cordillera Blanca is an outdoor enthusiasts dream! Forming part of the larger Andes range, the region is ideal for those searching for active adventure or a relaxing getaway in the mountains.

Included Activities

Cordillera Blanca-Hike to Rajucolta Lake
With your private guide and Chauffeur, make your way along a rough and rural track south of Huaraz eventually entering Huacaran National Park. Gradually ascend on this gentle hike through a verdant valley to Rajucolta Lake. Though reaching an altitude of 4250 meters, we recommend this activity as a great way to acclimatize before doing more strenuous hikes in the region. Following the mountain stream through flat pastures filled with cattle, take in the stunning panorama of ‘Raju,´ which in native Quechua means ice capped mountain. Enjoy lunch by the lake which is situated at the base of soaring Huantsan peak where an impressive glacier cascades into the water. (09:00 – 16:30, Box lunch included, Private activity, Easy to moderate hiking).

Cordillera Blanca – Hiking Lake 69
Arguably the most stunning of the aqua colored glacial lakes in the Cordillera Blanca, Lake 69 is tucked below the towering peaks of Pisco and Chacraraju. At an altitude of 4600 meters, we recommend this strenuous yet rewarding hike only after prior acclimatization. Begin the day by driving north through Callejon de Huaylas and Llanganuco valleys passing local communities. Enter the National Park and stop for photos at the lovely Llanganuco Lakes. Continue to Cebollapampa at 3900 meters, the starting point of the hike. The walk begins pleasant and easy for about an hour through a relatively flat valley with jaw-dropping views of Huascaran and the high peaks. Afterwards the trail becomes more difficult as you ascend the first rocky zig-zag path to a small lagoon. From there it is another hour climb up the second zig-zag trail, which is the most difficult. The effort is rewarded as you finally reach Lake 69 and are awestruck by the azure waters and towering mountains all around. Relax, enjoy lunch and soak in the views before beginning your descent back through the valley. (07:30 – 17:30, Box lunch included, Private activity, medium to difficult hike, 4600 meters altitude)
