Description

The journey begins at your hotel in Cusco. Our transfer will visit you very early between 4:00 and 5:00 in the morning. We will embark on a approximately two and a half hour car ride to the town of Mollepata in the province of Anta, where we can enjoy a delicious breakfast and gather the necessary provisions. After breakfast, we will continue our journey for about an hour and a half by car. The road we will take is a dirt road until we reach the community of Soraypampa, located at an altitude of 3900 meters above sea level. During the trip, we will see beautiful landscapes and the impressive 'Salkantay' snow-capped mountain. From Soraypampa, we will start a 2 km hike. The path is ascending and it will take us around 1 and a half to two hours, during the hike, we will witness panoramic views of snow-covered mountains, stunning natural landscapes, and a great diversity of flora and fauna until we reach the 'Humantay Lagoon' at an altitude of 4200 meters above sea level. The 'Humantay Lagoon' has a turquoise color due to the minerals at the bottom, and you can see the reflection of the sky in its waters. The lagoon is fed by the glaciers of the mountain and is considered a natural jewel. In addition to enjoying the Humantay Lagoon, we will be able to admire the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, such as the Salkantay snow-capped mountain, which was considered the most sacred mountain during the Inca times, a millennial space in honor of Pachamama, Mother Earth. Once you reach the lagoon, you can take part in a ceremony by placing stones to express gratitude for your arrival in this magical place. Our guide will accompany you around the lagoon and share other interesting information. After our visit, we will descend on foot to the community of Soraypampa, where we will enjoy a delicious Andean lunch. After lunch, we will begin the return journey to the city of Cusco. Our tour ends at approximately 6:30 in the evening, conclude our one-day hike to the Laguna Humantay.
