Humantay Lagoon is one of most magical lakes in the Cusco region, being surrounded by the impressive Humantay peak. While gazing at unbelievable turquoise water, you will have opportunity to appreciate beautiful landscapes of the Cusco Andes during our hike from Soraypampa to Humantay Lagoon.
Our adventure begins around 5:00 am with the pick up at your hotel. On a touristic van we will head to the Mollepata village in Apurimac river valley. Breakfast will be with the tour group and afterwards there’s a hike towards Soraypampa (3.900 m), a large green plain where we will have a stop.
From here, we hike towards our final destination. After an hour and a half of walking along the magnificent Cusco geography, we will arrive to the wonderful spot: the high snowy mountains standing around the incredible beauty of the Humantay Lagoon. Don’t waste this chance to appreciate the view and take all the pictures you can of this wonder of nature at 4.200 meters above sea level. After this incredible experience, we go back to the campsite for lunch. Around 6:30 pm we return to Cusco city, leaving the group downtown.
