This is probably the most beautiful place on earth. We started out a little before 6am and took a combi from Huaraz (Peru) to Yungay (1hr, 5 soles) before switching to a shared taxi to Cebolla Pampa (2hrs, 15 soles). By shared taxi I mean the car is packed to its full capacity before departing. And space in the boot means extra passengers along the way. Makes for a real cosy ride.
Sitting at 4600m, it took a 3hr steep climb (6hr roundtrip) before we reached the lake. Almost died a million times on the way but eventually it was all worth it. The lake was a beautiful turquoise colour, surrounded by mountains and glaciers. Absolutely insanely amazing.
