Eventually you’ll pass by the Chinancocha an Oroncocha Lagoon. After a short break, you’ll continue to Cebollapamapa, which is where you’ll start your walk to Laguna 69, on a hike that lasts a total of three hours. Once you reach the laguna, you’ll be at 15,091 feet (4,600 m) above sea level. At the lake, you’ll be under the shadow of the Chacraraju Mountain.
