Itinerary

Day 1
Humantay lake

 

The adventure starts with an early pick-up (around 4.30am) from your hotel in Cusco.


We will travel until the town of Mollepata, where breakfast will be served.

We will then make our way to Soraypampa (3850m altitude), which is the location of the campsite for the first day of the popular Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. We will then start our hike up to Humantay Lake (4200m altitude, passing through stunning landscapes and if the sky is clear enough will see the impressive ‘Apus’ (‘spirits of the mountains’) Salkantay and Humantay. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to reach the lake, with moderate difficulty due to the altitude and the steepness of the ascent, but it will be more than rewarding once we arrive at this natural beauty.


It is also possible to rent a horse in case you don’t feel like hiking all the way up. Once at the lagoon we will have enough time to take pictures, bring an offer to the Apus and the bravest among you can even decide to go swimming in the lake if it’s sunny! After some free time and rest, we will begin our descent to Soraypampa for 1.5 hours, which is much easier than the way up. In Soraypampa we will have lunch and after some rest will start making our way back to Cusco, arriving at approximately 5  pm.

We had a great time in Lima and Cusco. The tours were amazing, the food incredible and the people we met along the way unforgettable. We had a minor set back that the agency was quick to fix. I totally recommend them.
