Description

Laguna Yahuarcocha This peaceful glass-top lake was the site of a bloody massacre of the indigenous Cara people by Huayna Capac and his Inca army. In Quichua, the lake’s name translates to “lake of blood,” so chosen to recall the twenty to fifty thousand bleeding bodies that turned the lake waters crimson.
