Laguna Llaca is an alpine lake at an elevation of 4.450m (14,599ft) above the sea level, located in the Ancash department, in Peru. The road to the lake is gravel and pretty steep.
The road to reach the lake is gravel. It’s a long haul above Huaraz. The lake is located in the Cordillera Blanca, in the Huascarán National Park. The road to the lake is called Carretera a Llaca, running along traditional Andean villages. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! On the summit there are spectacular views of the snowy peaks which are already very close. Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. It's an extreme road. 4x4 vehicles with high clearance only.
