Day 1:
Humantay Lake Full Day Tour

Enjoy our Day Trip from Cusco to Humantay Lake. Hike along the beautiful valley trails and through the white mountains of Salkantay. On our Humantay Lake Tour, see one of the most important lakes in Incan mythology. Humantay Lake is one of the most stunning places in the Cusco region.

If you are looking for really spectacular scenery, we invite you to visit this Lagoon. Humantay Lake Full Day Hike from Cusco lasts one complete day. The mountains around the lagoon are snow-covered because their elevation is over 6000 masl. At 4:00 am. we’ll pick you up at your hotel. First, we´ll drive to Soraypampa (3900 masl.) which is where you’ll begin your hike.

Here you’ll eat a good breakfast which will be freshly prepared by local chefs. Then you will organize your trekking equipment and start out on your one and a half hour hike up to the Humantay Lagoon. Our rate of climb will not have to be very fast. When you arrive at Humantay Lake you´ll be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the snow-capped peaks and the crystal-clear waters. There will be plenty of time for photo sessions. Before you have to hike down again, you´ll enjoy a guided tour and learn about the site and how climate change is affecting the region here at the Salkantay Massif.

Finally, after enjoying the eternal beauty of Salkantay and Humantay Mountain you will return to Soraypampa. This is where you will eat a wonderful lunch, once again freshly prepared by local chefs from Mollepata and Soraypama. Then you´ll relax a bit before packing up and heading back to Cusco. Your arrival back in Cusco is scheduled for late in the afternoon or early in the evening. We can drop you off at Plazoleta Regocijo.

It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, the guide will be the one who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if such modifications are possible.
Strikes in cusco

In case of changes or cancellations, everything will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority, and our decisions will be made to protect it.
