Hike Laguna Rajucolta

Visit the popular Laguna Rajucolta located at 4250 masl . This is an amazing day hike because of the magnificent view of Nevado Huantsan, (6395m / 20,981 ft) the second highest mountain in the Cordillera Blanca range. Huantsan dominates the surrounding landscape to the point that you hardly notice the surrounding beautiful waterfalls and high cliffs during your hike. Rated as an easy to moderate hike, it’s an ideal acclimatization day hike for the first day.
Hiking in the Andes is transcendent and eternal, infectious and convincing that you chose a true “national geographic” adventure experience.
