Description

The trail is very popular and the trailhead is easy to find. The trail starts with a very steep stone staircase as it traces a ridge up to a National Park Hut. From there, it levels off briefly and heads into the valley, then becomes very steep again, gaining altitude quickly. It briefly descends into a valley before going straight up a rock wall where scrabbling with fixed rubber ropes takes you up to the first laguna. The trail continues on the side of the lake up to another smaller high alpine lake.
