Laguna Humantay Tour / Full Day – Salkantay Trek
Located in the district of Mollepata, and under the snow that gives it its name, the lake Humantay is impressive, majestic and impressive for all those tourists who come to it and for a long time, the lagoon was part of the tourist route.
Several days to the snowy Salkantay. However, some time ago, we began to do the route to visit the lagoon in just one day, and you do not have to do the trekking for several days to see and enjoy it.
Our adventure towards lake Humantay begins with the pick-up from your hotel at 4:30 a.m. in your hotels. Then go by bus for 3 hours approx. to the town of Mollepata (2803 m.s.).
In mollepata will have a time of 50.0 minutes approx. to enjoy breakfast, then we will continue the journey by mobile for about an hour. until arriving at Soraypampa (3850 m.s.m.) from where we will start our adventure towards the lake Humantay (4200 m.s.n.).
We begin to ascend through a plain with beautiful views, if the sky is clear we will have the opportunity to appreciate from afar the imposing Apus of Salkantay and Humantay.
Our ascent from Soraypampa to lake Humantay lasts approximately 1 hour and a half, but it is also possible to rent an optional horse.

The hike is considered between an easy to moderate level, but all the effort will be rewarded with a magical view of the lagoon. There we will have enough time to take pictures, make a brief offering to the Apus, then we begin our descent from Laguna Humantay to Soraypampa which lasts approximately 30 minutes, a walk easier than the climb.
When we return to Soraypampa we will take our return transport to the town of Mollepata where we will enjoy the lunch, then we will start the return to the imperial city of Cusco (arriving approximately between 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm)
