I thought that this was really an inspirational experience. Far above the traffic and the ticket lines I was able to get a good view of the grandeur that is the Andean Mountain Range. It is so vast, and so wild and so beautiful. All I had to do was to enjoy the experience. Travel 1 efficiently took care of every detail. So I would recommend that you go to Lake Humantay and that you go with Travel 1. I particularly enjoyed getting to meet the local folks during breakfast and lunch.
What a fantastic hike! High enough that you have to walk slowly, but well worth the effort. The Travel 1 folks were very helpful. An experience that I will never forget!
