Laguna 69

Monthly Overview

What to Do

Peru also offers plenty of options for nature lovers during November.

You can spend a few days, or weeks even, trekking in the Cordillera Blanca seeking out it’s many lagoons (Laguna Paron, Laguna 69, Laguna Wilacocha a few well known ones for example) & glaciated peaks (Pisco, Mateo, Urus & Ishinka great for beginners to climbing).

Other great options are to go and marvel at the stunning landscapes of Colca or Cotahuasi Canyon,  or relax and enjoy a desert oasis whilst taking in some awesome activities in the dunes of Huacachina.


If you are visiting Peru in this month, Puno Week is a great festival to experience. Taking place at the beginning of the month and centers around November 5, it is also known as Puno Day. The celebrations mark the birth of Manco Cápac, who, according to legend, was the first Inca.

Enjoy parties & revels all over the city, whilst also having the chance to see a reenactment of Manco Cápac’s arrival on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
