Challanging Acclimatization Day Hike to Laguna Aguac


 Aguak Lake at 4560m 

Time:  Full Day
Grade: Hard - challenging
Altitude Max: 4560m.

Inkaland Treks denominates this hike as challenging acclimatization hike and  rated as demanding because it involves a sustained upward ascent on a nice trail for 3 ½ to 4 hours to reach this beautiful glacier formed lake.  As your hike takes you higher, you gain magnificent vast views of the Cordillera Negra mountain range as a back drop to the city of Huaraz seen in the valley below with great views of the white-capped high peaks of the Cordillera Blanca range to the southeast as your ascent brings you close to the top.  The hike to Laguna Ahuac  is a good choice for a second follow-up acclimation day hike and is especially recommend for those who have already completed an medium hike the day before and now seek to pursue a more challenging hike.  This hike is particularly good as necessary support for acclimating to higher altitude for one of Inkaland Treks’ guided mountain climbing programs to several of the spiraling summits in the beautiful Cordillera Blanca.

An early start .Our Inkaland Treks guide and private transfer will collect you from your hotel after breakfast then you will drive up to the Wilkahuain Village where the Willkawain archeological complex is located dating back to about 600 - 900 AD. Initially you start hiking on an easy, gentle ascent passing through eucalyptus trees on a well market path then become a steady gradual climb t up to reach Laguna Aguak.Some people find hard the last section just before to reach the lake, it is because of the lack of oxygen as it is high altitude.

Upon reaching Laguna Aguak, you will be impressed capturing both the site of this beautiful colorful glacier made lake and the amazing surrounding panoramic views of the peaks from this prime lofty position. At the Aguak lake you’ll spend time walking around, relaxing taking great photos and enjoying our testy snack before we begin our descent back down to Wilkahuain Village where our private transportation waits to drive you back to your Huaraz hotel. Approximately time is about 7 to 8 hours.
