Cusco, Peru

For Humantay Lake tour we collect you from your hotel to get started on our adventure towards the Humantay Lake having a 4-hour-drive in private transport to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). Soraypampa is a campsite for the 1st day of the Salkantay trek.  In Soraypampa we are going to have a delicious breakfast to begin our day just before beginning our treking. In Soraypampa we are going to start Humantay tour (4200 m.a.s.l.) with beautiful views in case the sky is clear, we are able to see the impressive snow-capped Salkantay and Humantay. It’s a 1.5-hour-walk towards the lake which has a low to moderate difficulty, and more than worth the effort when you observe the wonderful view. It’s also possible rent a horse instead. We are going to have plenty of time to take photos, bring an offer for the Apus, and for the real brave ones; swimming on the lake when it’s sunny! After free time, we are going to start our descent to Soraypampa of approximately 1.5 hours, that is a lot easier compared to way up. In Soraypampa lunch will await us after some rest we go back to Cusco where we are going to arrive by 6 p.m.
