Humantay Lake Tour 1 Day highlights:

  • Enjoy the beautiful turquoise lake.
  • Humantay Lake is well-known as one of the most beautiful points of the famous Salkantay Trek.
  • Nestled among the the various scenic mountain peaks.
  • Skip the crowds with us.

Acclimatization:
We recommend you be in Cusco at least 2 days before your trek to be acclimatized to Cusco’s altitude so that you won’t have a problem during the tour.

About us:
Choquequirao Expeditions is a direct local tour operator in Cusco – Peru; we never share our tours with other companies as most of them do to minimize operating costs. We don’t work with intermediaries or have hidden prices; we have the best local guides and professionals. We guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of local Peruvians, due to the simple reason we are a local business!

Itinerary

Cusco - Soraypampa - Humantay Lake - Cusco.

We will pick you up from your hotel between 4:30 to 5:00; then we will travel for 4 hours to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). In Soraypampa, we will have a delicious breakfast to start the day well before starting our trek. In Soraypampa, we will start a walk to the Humantay lagoon (4200 m.a.s.l.) with beautiful views, and if the sky is clear enough, we will see the impressive Salkantay and Humantay snow-capped mountains.

This walk will take you 1 hour and 30 minutes to the lagoon with medium and moderate difficulty, but it will all be worth it when you appreciate the magnificent view of this natural wonder. It is also possible to rent a horse if you don’t want to walk. Once in the Humantay lagoon, we will have enough time to take photos and even make an offering to the Apus. After some free time, we will begin our descent to Soraypampa of approximately 1 hour, which will naturally be much easier than the ascent. In Soraypampa lunch will wait for us and after a break, we will return to Cusco where we will arrive around 5 pm.

Maximum Altitude: 4,250 m.
Meals: Breakfast & lunch.
Distance of walking: 09 Km.
Highlights: Stunning views of the Humantay lake, Salkantay Mountain.
