Peru keeps surprising us with its Culture, History, Gastronomy and Nature. In each region you can find tourist attractions worthy of admiration and inviting us to know. This is the case of Humantay Lake, a bit known natural attraction that has an impressive geography formed over the time. In the Humantay Lake Expedition, we will have the opportunity to visit it and beautify by its particular charm.

Itinerary

Very early in the morning we will start our journey by land to the town of Mollepata, where we will have our first stop for the buffet breakfast. We will continue until we reach the Soraypampa valley where we begin our trek. Along the way, we will be able to appreciate different ecological floors, beautiful landscapes and the imposing snow-glaciered Mountains Humantay and Salkantay. After about an hour and a half trekking, we will arrive at the impressive Humantay Lagoon located at 4200 masl (13779 ft.). Its turquoise and crystalline colors contrast with the majestic snowfalls of the area. We will return for lunch to the same town of Mollepata and to the city of Cusco by the same route.
