This is very rough hike uphill. Great thanks to my lovely horse without him I most likely wouldn't have been able to make it and see the breathtaking lake! The guide was extremely helpful as well. Thank you Freddy!!! Experience of lifetime!

Your details were well communicated, our guide Freddy was fun and informative and both the breakfast and lunch was excellent. The climb and view were definitely worth it and we arrived before the majority of all the other tourists

One of the most beautiful areas I have ever been too. Prepare for steep mountains and high altitude. Food and guides were fantastic

Freddie was our guide and he was awesome. The place you stop to eat is great and the lake was beautiful. I would do it again.

La laguna es increíble, recomiendo usar el caballo y el transporte puede ser más cómodo
