Humantay Lake Hike
Humantay lake hike, is one of most magical lakes in the Cusco region, being surrounded by the impressive Salkantay and Humantay peaks. While gazing at unbelievable turquoise water, you will have opportunity to appreciate beautiful landscapes of the Peruvian Andes during our hike from Soraypampa to Humantay Lake. This turquois lake is one of the photogenic jewels of the Cusco region and its proximity to Humantay and Salcantay mountains only adds to its beauty.
Humantay lake hike is a great option for those looking to see the spectacular glacial landscapes of Cusco and only have a day to do it. Humantay Lake is a glacial lake located on the slopes of Humantay Mountain (5835 m/19143 ft) and is part of the Salkantay massif which has become one of the world’s most popular areas for higher altitude trekking. Along with turquois colored Humantay Lake we will also have spectacular views of Humantay and Salcantay Mountains.
Tour Type: Hiking, adventure.
Good For: Those with a sense of adventure and in good shape.
Temperature: Cold, temperature may go below 0 degrees at night.
Considerations: Enjoy the amazing colors of the mountains before they are discovered by the public.
Heigh: The height of Humantay Lagoon is reflected in its 4200 meters above sea level.
By booking The Humantay Lake hike with Cusco Journeys you are choosing the best. Don’t believe us? Check out our reviews onTripadvisor.
You will have a thorough briefing with your guide 1 or 2 days before your Humantay lake hike. Your guide will meet you at our office in Cusco and you can take this opportunity to ask questions and make any final preparations.
We pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 4:30 am and drive 2 hours to the village of Mollepata, located in the lush valley of the Apurimac River. Here we will enjoy breakfast in a local restaurant before we start the trek to Soraypampa.
Our hike takes us along a photogenic trail called the “Camino Real,” as we gain altitude we’ll reach the tiny village of Soraypampa, where few amenities exist. We’ll continue for another hour and a half, gaining another 1,200 feet in just 2 miles ascending a steep path. After summiting the last hill, we will gaze down on the turquoise lake below, which is surrounded by steep peaks and an impressive glacier.
We’ll spend about an hour taking photos and admiring Humantay Lake and discussing the geography and culture of our surrounding before we return to Mollepata along the Camino Real and board our van to Cusco where we’ll arrive at about 5 pm just in time for you to prepare for your dinner and evening in the Imperial City.
