How to get there.


How to Get to Laguna 69

If you are travelling from more Southern Peru or Bolivia there are two options when trying to figure out how to get to Laguna 69: The first option is public buses which operate out of public bus terminals. The second option is private hop-on hop-off bus companies that tend to be a lot safer and allow travelers an entirely flexible itinerary.


One of the most highly recommended hop-on hop-off companies is Peru Hop. This option can bring you from southern areas such as Cusco or La Paz as far as Lima, but unfortunately they do not operate any further north as of yet. Peru Hop runs from Cusco to Lima and from Lima to Cusco, stopping in destinations such as Arequipa, Nazca, Huacachina and Paracas. Their sister company Bolivia Hop is available from La Paz to Cusco and from Cusco to La Paz.
