info Info about this incredible tour

The Humantay Lake (4,200 m) is one of the best tourist attractions in Cusco. Now, how does an unforgettable trekking tour in Cusco’s mountains to this impressive lake sound?

With us, you will be one of the first ones on the mountain to enjoy this beautiful landscape almost for yourself as we start earlier than all of the large tourist groups.

Our tour guide will hike in a flexible pace adapted to your needs until reaching the Humantay lake, no matter if you’re a beginner or a pro hiker. After around two hours of hiking, you will explore off the beaten path spots for incredible photos of the lake and its surroundings.

And with some luck you might even be able to get a picture of the Salkantay mountain, Cusco’s second highest mountain (20,574 ft / 6,271 m), and the Humantay mountain together. Having spent 1 hour at the lake, you will descend and see how various large groups hike up. Are you ready to get to know the beautiful Humantay lake?

“It was a very early wake up but absolutely worthwhile as we were the first ones at the lake and literally had the whole place to ourselves for about 45 minutes.”

If there is enough time, we’ll have lunch at the restaurant but if not we’ll take a box lunch to go.)
