- Hiking / Trekking
The beautiful Laguna Khotia lies at an altitude of 14,665 ft in the Jichukhota Valley, which is located in the vicinity of Chachacomani.
This mountain lake generally serves as the first stage for treks in the Cordillera Real, a mountain range sometimes referred to as the Himalayas of the New World by hiking enthusiasts. Take into account the amount of time you have available, your budget and your physical condition and fitness when choosing which route to do. After visiting and exploring Laguna Khotia, one option you have is that of heading next to Laguna Ajwani, otherwise known as the "Bird Lagoon".
Allow around four hours to walk this section of the hike. Experienced hikers and very fit, sporty types will likely want to continue on towards the Cordillera Real's most famous peaks, such as Huayna Potosí, Chachacomani and Illampu. However, you should only consider doing this if you don't suffer from altitude sickness and are able to maintain a good walking pace!
