Hike Laguna Mullaca 2022

Two lakes located in Cordillera Blanca; close to Huaraz; its a strategic point to enjoy views of Cordillera Blanca and the valley of Callejon de Huaylas.

The landscape and the views of the Callejon de Huaylas Valley, make this route one of the most special in the Cordillera Blanca; then hiking from Laguna Radian to Laguna Mullaca will make your adventure a much more special complement.

It only requires that the traveler is well acclimatized and ready to walk on a rough path (long way) and in some parts the streams do not have bridges and therefore you have to cross over rocks.
