Humantay lake located in the district of Mollepata, and under the snow that gives its name; this lake is wonderful, majestic and amazing for all those tourists who approach it and a long time the lake wasn’t part of the tourist route to Salkantay snowy.

Day 1:Soraypampa - Humantay lake

After we pick you up at your accommodation, we will begin our adventure to the Humantay Lake with a 3:30 hour transportation to Soraypampa (3850 masl).
In Mollepata we’ll have a delicious breakfast to begin a great day, then we’ll go to Soraypampa to start our trek until we’ll arrive to Humantay lake (4200 m.a.s.l) with beautiful views and if the sky is clear, we can see the awesome Salkantay and Humantay snowy.
This trek is around 2 hours to the lake with a low to moderate difficulty, and it’s worth when you’ll take a look. Also it’s possible to rent a horse.
We’ll have enough time for pictures, and give an offering to “APUS” or to the most important mountains there.
After a free time, we’ll begin our descent to Soraypampa in approximately 2 hours, which is much easier than going up. In Mollepata we’ll have lunch and then after to have a break we’ll return to Cusco arriving approximately at 6 p.m
