My oath to never hike again in my life after Machu Picchu was shortlived. To reach Laguna 69 close to the city of Huaraz, you need to do a 3 hour hike and walk the same route all the way back. Luckily the beautiful landscape eases the pain.
When we arrived after the exhausting hike at Laguna 69 I was pretty disappointed. With such an alluring name, my imagination about the Laguna 69 area had run wild, but apparently there are 400 lakes in the area and they all received a number based name and this one just happens to be named 69.
After my initial dissapointment wore off I was amazed by the clear blue water. We sat and enjoyed the surroundings for a while before heading back. It was an intense walk, but more then worth it.
