A trip to Humantay Lake is learning more about the local communities of Izcuchaca and Limatambo, which still keep the Inca traditions alive, such as the famous ritual of the Apacheta. This is the most famous short hike in Cusco that the Salkantay route has to offer.
The incredible turquoise waters in Humantay are located at the base of a glacier-covered mountain range. The views are incredible for any visitor who enjoys cold weather.

  • Transport to Mollepata.
  • Hike up to the Humantay Lake.
  • Buffet lunch in Mollepata and return to Cusco.

ITINERARIO

PRE - Departure briefing - Cusco

The briefing will be headed by our tour guide a day before the Humantay Lake Tour. This talk is given to all travelers for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. It is important to hear it because, at this moment, you will hear about each moment of the trip in detail. Moreover, remember that if you have any doubts this is the perfect moment to ask. Finally, you will receive the final advice before the departure, such as what to wear during the trip, the climate in the sites you will visit, etc.

DAY 01 - Guided Visit to Humantay Lake - Cuzco - Soraypampa - Humantay Lake - Cusco

Our team will pick you up from the hotel and at 4:30 am reach the Mollepata district, two hours from Cusco. Once we have met the rest of the group and team, we will have breakfast before continuing to Soraypampa, which is the starting point of our trek.

Once we arrive, we will hike for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes at more than 4000 m. This is a short but demanding trek. Finally, on the foothills of the glacier, we will reach the Lake, and be rewarded with a beautiful vista of the site including the summit of the Salkantay Mountain, and the Vilcabamba Mountain Rage.

You will have resting time and an hour to explore the place, and then the group will prepare to descend to Soraypampa. Arriving here, we will explore the place and have amazing views of the surroundings. After, we will continue our weay to Mollepata, and enjoy a tasty lunch to finally go back to Cusco by car. We will be at the center of the city at around 6:30 pm

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Acclimate to the altitude: Since your tour will reach more at 5.473 masl, you must be in Cusco City at least 1 day before your journey to Humantay. This is recommended to avoid altitude sickness or soroche.
  • Pack smartly: Bring just what you will need, but prepare for sunny days as well as occasional rain. We recommend bringing layered clothes, trekking gear, toiletries, and personal items.
  • During the trekking: Hike at your own pace, don’t forget that our team is there to assist you, but the trek can be considered a little challenging due to the altitude. However, you can make stops to have a hot beverage, rest, and continue. We promise that the landscape is worth it all.
  • Respect for locals and the environment: The Inca Trail is home to an incredible biodiversity. Moreover, you will enjoy animal and plant species during your journey. That is why you have to take with you a plastic bag to return your garbage. Also, the local communities are very open and welcoming. You can learn a lot from them along the trail.

FAQ's

What is the best way to see Humantay?

You have two main options to get there. In the first place, you can take our full-day excursion to Humantay Lake only. But, if you have more available days on your itinerary, you should consider doing the Salkantay Tour to Machu Picchu, which on the first day passes through this beautiful turquoise lake, and the rest of the days through the Andes to reach the best Inca Site, Machu Picchu.

What to do in Humantay Lake?

This magic town offers Andean rituals to enjoy in the lake, such as the Pachamama ceremony, you will have a very close understanding of the Inca cultural legacy during your tour. Moreover, you will love the story behind the lake and the mountains that surround it.

What do I have to consider before doing the Humantay Lake?

Compared to other walks, this is not challenging, but we recommend you be in good shape and acclimated to the altitude. This trek is not recommended for kids, or people with severe health issues, and having health insurance is highly recommended as well.
