Humantay Lake Tour. If you are looking for really spectacular scenery, we invite you to visit Humantay Lagoon. Humantay Lake full day hike from Cusco lasts one complete day. The mountains around the lagoon are snow covered because its elevation is 5835 masl. At 4:30 am. we will pick you up at your hotel. First we´ll drive to Soraypampa (3900 masl.) which is where we will begin our hike.
Here we will eat a good breakfast prepared by our chef. We can organize our trekking equipment and start out on our one hour and a half hike up to the Humantay Lagoon. Our rate of climb will not have to be very fast. When we arrive at the Humantay Lake you´ll be able to enjoy the completely natural beauty of the snow-capped peaks and the crystal clear waters. There will be plenty of time for photo sessions. Before we have to hike down again we´ll have a guided tour and learn about the site and the climatological conditions here.
Finally, after enjoying the eternal beauty of Salkantay and Humantay Mountain we will return to Soraypampa. That is where we will eat lunch. Then we´ll relax a bit before packing up and heading back to Cusco. Our arrival back in Cusco is scheduled for late in the afternoon or early in the evening.

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!
