Laguna Glaciar is a glacial lagoon at altitude located between the village of Sorata and Laguna Chillata.

My suggestion:
If you're not particularly into mountaineering or you don't have much time, I'd recommend going on a mini 3-day trek between Sorata and Laguna Glaciar. 
My review

Located over 5,000 metres above sea level, Laguna Glaciar can be found on the slopes of Illampu and Ancohuma in the Cordillera Real. 

If you're not into sports or you simply don't have enough time to go trekking for a week or two, you can explore Laguna Glaciar by going on a mini 3-day trek from Sorata. Nights are spent in a tent or in a homestay. It's also an opportunity to meet the Andean communities.

Given the short duration of the hike, you'll have to carry your own luggage. But don't worry, the paths are well used and easily accessible, and the inclines and declines are not as steep as on other routes. However, you'll need to be in excellent physical condition to go on this walk.
