we’ll leave Cusco early in the morning to go to Humantay Lake. We’ll try to go there before the crowds show up.
we will trip for 4 hours in our Private transport. The road we will take is a path to Soraypampa, which is located in the lush valley of the Apurimac River and at an altitude of 3900 meters above sea level (12,795 ft.). We will stop for a taste breakfast, stock up the latest provisions, and enjoy the mountains against the early morning light, after the breakfast we will begin our Humantay Lake trek there.
If the sky is clear, you’ll start to feel the powerful presence of the impressive snow-capped Salkantay and Humantay glaciers. We’re going to hike to Humantay Lake. It will take about an hour and a half to two hours, and the first 45 minutes are fairly easy. The trail gets harder during the later half, so be prepared for a challenging hike.
While we are walking towards Humantay Lake. We will see a beautiful view of snow-capped mountains, a diverse natural landscape, and beautiful flowers and animals.
The Humantay Lake is a beautiful lake that is hidden among the rocks. It is a great place to take a walk and see all the beautiful scenery. We can also go hiking up a little bit to get to another great viewpoint with even more beautiful views of Laguna Humantay and the Apu Humantay mountain. This hike will really make you feel the height difference, and you’ll understand why this area is so sacred to the Andean people.
after we enjoyed our day trip to Humantay Lake today. We’ll start the hike back down to Soraypampa, the town where our hike began. In Soraypampa, we’ll have lunch. After lunch, we’ll be taken back to the city of Cusco in our transportation. This will end our day trip to Humantay Lake.
