Home // Treks In Cusco

DESCRIPTION

The humantay lagoon is located at the base of the Humantay glacial mountain (5473 m). The glacier melts forming a beautiful lagoon under it. The glacial water of Humantay that accumulates in the lake emits one of the brightest turquoise colors we have for this place. Mixing with the green plants you will observe the different colors of Mount Humantay, a view that you will not want to miss. If you feel adventurous, you can jump into the icy water, this will be something crazy that you will not forget easy ...

In Soraypampa we will start our hike to Lake Humantay (4200 masl) with beautiful views as you can see a lush Andean green valley and if the sky is clear enough, we can see the impressive Salkantay (6271m.) And the Humantay glacier (5473 m.). It is a walk of about 1 hour. to the lake with moderate difficulty, and more than worth it when you see the magical view of the lagoon, where we will have enough time to take pictures, possibly make an offering to the tutelary Apus if necessary and for the brave adventurers the option to swim in the lake when it's sunny.
