Laguna Yantac

Laguna Yantac

Laguna Yantac is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 4.641m (15,226ft) above the sea level located in the Andes, in the Yauli Province in the Junín Region in Peru.

The road to the lake is gravel. 4x4 recommended, It’s a cliff road unprotected by guardrails. The climb to the lake is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters.
