What you'll do

Our adventure towards the Humantay Lagoon begins with the pick-up of your hostel or airbnb from 4:00 to 4:30 trip of 3 1/2 hours in Van to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). Soraypampa Here we will enjoy an exquisite breakfast before going up to the lagoon. Continuing with our adventure towards the Humantay Lagoon (4200 m.a.s.l.). We begin to ascend through a pampa with beautiful views, if the sky is clear we will have the opportunity to appreciate the imposing snowfalls of Salkantay and Humantay from afar. Our ascent from Soraypampa to Laguna Humantay lasts approximately 1 hour and a half, but it is also possible to rent a horse if you wish. 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 for photographs and information by the guide.
Immediately afterwards we will begin our descent from Humantay Lagoon to Soraypampa, which lasts approximately 1 hour in Soraypampa, a delicious buffet lunch awaits us and then we will take our transport back to Cusco arriving approximately 6:00 pm
Note. The service is group with 18 passengers.

It's is like a magic fairy tale landscape. You must go. There are lot of groups that visit the place, but you can find a space to connect yourself with the nature. Breathe and be present, if not, you'll we remember the moment just as a dream....

Me gustó mucho la experiencia. El guía era de la zona y nos hizo una oración de los nativos, lo cual le añade valor. Fue muy amable. El lugar es hermoso.

Es una experiencia recomendada si se visita Perú, el desayuno y el almuerzo excelente, pero el transporte fue muy incomodo para un trayecto tan largo. El anfitrión no es quien presta el servicio sino que te deja en un tour que se consigue allá mas económico, lo de nadar en la laguna es falso, es prohibido.

Simplemente pasan por ti una empresa subcontratada, la persona que ofrece el servicio no llega o ni siquiera te busca. La experiencia no está mal pero la hubiera contratado más económica.
