An amazing getaway from Cusco city, back to the stunning nature, is a wonderful alternative to be there a few meters of the glaciers of those glorious Andes, for an awe inspiring scenery of a turquoise lake, and also the opportunity to be so close to the majestic huge snow peaks: Salkantay and Humantay snow peaks!
We will pick you up by 4.30am in the morning with our Van, and then we´ll travel about 2 hours to the town “Mollepata” 3,600mts for a nice breakfast, after that we´ll continue our journey for 1 more hour to the starting point “Soraypampa” 3,900mts, from there we will start our hike up to the stunning Lake Humantay (4,400mts).
With our tour guide, all the group will hike in group, but everybody will take their own pace, it will take about 1.15 hours going uphill in a gradual ascend (nothing steep), once you reach the lake, then you will have enough time to rest and to take all the photos, if you are lucky you might have to chance also to see the Andean Chinchillas (like wild rabbits) or perhaps the eagle or maybe the Condor.
Later back to the Soraypampa site for a delicious lunch.
After that, we board the Van to be back to Cusco by 5pm.
