Visit The Famous Humantay Lake in Cusco.

This is a great trek to one of the most famous lakes in Cusco city, "The Humantay lake".
This is a tour that includes a car ride and also a walk. The Humantay Lake is located above 4200 masl, so it is recommended to do this tour when you feel acclimated to the city of Cusco. This tour start at 05:00 am and finish around 06:00 PM

while you walk you will perceive the panorama of snow-capped mountains, breathtaking natural scenery and the great diversity of flora and fauna until you reach the Humantay Lake where you will enjoy the breathtaking views of Humantay Lake, the snow-capped Salkantay and the surrounding mountains of this wonderful place.

"NOTE: If you have a specific itinerary in mind send me a message and I'll customize the tour for you"


You will be picked up at the hotel 05:00am we will start our adventure to the Humantay Lake with 3-hour-drive pass through different towns in private transport to Soraypampa (3850 m. s. n. m. ) In Mollepate we will have the breakfast to start our day well before beginning our trek. Once we arrive to Soraypampa we will start our trek up to the Humantay Lake (4200 m. s. n. m. ). with breathtaking views and if the sky is clear enough, we can see the impressive snow-capped Salkantay and Humantay. It is a 1. 5-hour-walk to the lake with a low to moderate difficulty, and more than worth it when you see the mystic and magic view. You will have enough time to take pictures, to bring an offer to the Apu Salkantay. After some free time, we will start our descent to Soraypampa of about 1. 5 hours, which is a lot easier than the way up. In Soraypampa lunch will await us and after to rest we will return to Cusco by car (3 hours) Aproximately time to arrive to Cusco 6:00PM
