Full DayJourney to Humantay Lake

The day kicks off bright and early with a hotel pickup, as you join our knowledgeable guide for a 2-hour private drive to Mollepata, where you’ll check in for the Salkantay route and have the opportunity to enjoy a local breakfast in town. Continuing for another hour, you’ll reach Soraypampa, the starting point of the hike, offering breathtaking views of the snowy Salkantay and Humantay peaks, creating a landscape like no other. Here, begin the ascent to Humantay Lake, a gradual hike lasting one to two hours, led by your guide who will share insights into the region’s history, endemic flora, fauna, and other highlights of the Peruvian highlands.

Upon reaching the majestic Humantay Lake, nestled at an altitude of over 4300 meters, you’ll be captivated by its turquoise waters at the foot of the glacier mountain of the same name. Take time for enchanting photos, explore the area for an hour or two, and even indulge in a refreshing dip. After the exploration, return to Soraypampa on foot before transferring to a Traditional Restaurant for a well-deserved buffet lunch.

Finally, relax as you’re chauffeured back to Cusco in the comfort of a private vehicle, arriving by evening.
