Video of the Tour

The Humantay lake offers one of the most beautiful landscapes in Cusco and Peru. Its turquoise waters and the snow-capped mountains that surround it are photographed by hundreds of tourists every day. The best way to visit this beautiful landscape is taking the Humantay lake full day tour. This tour includes everything you need for the adventure: hotel pick-up, transportation, breakfast, lunch, entrance fees, and professional tour guide service.

SEE HOW IT IS



HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Be amazed by the gigantic glaciers, Humantay and Salkantay, that rise above you.
  • Gaze in awe at the sheer beauty of the turquoise waters of Lake Humantay against the snow-white backdrop.
  • Feel the powerful energy of Mother Nature as you immerse yourself in her world.
  • Enjoy a delicious breakfast and lunch
  • Spend the perfect day away from the city in the peace and tranquility of the Andes.
Day 01
Cusco | Mollepata | Soraypampa |Humantay lake | Cusco

Group tour: We pick-up at your hotel at 4:30 am
Private tour: Choose pickup at your hotel between 03:00 am to 7:00 am

We pick you up at hotels, Airbnbs, houses, apartments in the historic center of Cusco. We will start by driving to Mollepata, where we will stop for a delicious breakfast and enjoy the mountains in the morning light. Once we are full, we will continue on our transport to Soraypampa, where you will begin to feel the powerful presence of the glaciers. After listening to brief instructions from your guide, we will begin our 2-hour ascent to the beautiful Humantay Lake.

Keep in mind that you will be walking on very rocky terrain, so using a walking stick is a great idea. Take your time, walk slowly, get some rest, and try to drink plenty of fluids; it will be at a high altitude, so you should take things slow.

After the effort of walking uphill, you will enjoy the most incredible reward. Hidden among the rocky landscape, the impressive Humantay Lake gradually appears. This beautiful body of turquoise water originates from the same snow that covers the mountain, which melts and drains away. Hike and make an effort to go a bit higher up the surrounding rocky slopes for better views. The higher you are, the more turquoise the water will look and you will be able to enjoy the best panoramic view. Being so close to the mountains will really shake you up and you will probably understand why they are so sacred in the Andean culture.

It will be about an hour and a half downhill to return to Soraypampa, where you will return to the town of Mollepata to enjoy a spectacular buffet lunch. Then you will board our transport to take you back to Cusco.

What is the best time to make the excursion to Laguna Humantay?

Peru is a very large country with many different climates, for that reason it would be very difficult to define a good time to visit different places.

If you want to see one side of the mountain covered and the other side the colors? These dates are the best time.
