Humantay Lake is one of the many hidden gems of Perus highland region. The emerald waters and the hugely imposing glacier come together in flawless harmony for the truly incredible sight that you see. Nestled between two different peaks and the only way to access it (safely) is from below. This means there are no tantalizing glances of the water to spur you on, simply the mystery of what is to come. Located 120 kilometers from Cusco, this is it the perfect day trip into the mountains
At 05:30 am pick up from your selected hotel located in Cusco, we will start our adventure to the Humantay Lake, we drive for about 3 ½ hours to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). There we will provide you a snack before to begin our trek. It is a 1.5-hour-walk to the Humantay Lake (4200 m.a.s.l.) with moderate difficulty, you will be amazed with the magical view. Upon arrival to the Lake we will have enough time to take pictures and rest, after some free time, we will start to descend to Soraypampa for about one hour, which is a lot easier than the way up. In Soraypampa we will enjoy a picnic lunch before to return to Cusco.
