Humantay Lake

HUMANTAY LAKE

Very early in the morning we will pick you up at your hotel and start our trip by bus to our first stop, the district of Mollepata called "the pantry of the world" for its splendid and varied agricultural production. After a short break, we will continue to Soraypampa starting point of our trek. Along the way we will see various ecological floors and beautiful landscapes. After an hour and a half of hiking, at 4,200 m.s. we will delight ourselves with the impressive Humantay Lagoon that has turquoise and crystalline colors that contrast remarkably with the majestic snow-capped mountains of the area: Humantay and Salkantay. After enjoying the spectacular beauty of the place, we will return to Soraypampa for lunch and at the indicated time, we will return along the same road to Cusco.
