Full Description:

After we pick you up at your hotel, we will start our adventure to the Humantay Lagoon with a three hour-drive to Mollepata (3850 m.a.s.l.). In Mollepata we will have a delicious breakfast to start our day well before beginning our trek. After half an hour we will arrive to Soraypampa where we will begin our trek up to the Humantay Lagoon (4200 m.a.s.l.). We will be able to appreciate beautiful views of the scenery and the impressive snow-capped Salkantay and Humantay. It is a 1.5-hour-walk to the lagoon with a low to moderate difficulty, and more than worth it when you see the magical view. We will have enough time to take pictures and enjoy its beautiful views. We will start our descent to Soraypampa, which is a lot easier than the way up. In Mollepata, buffet  lunch will await us and, after some rest, we return to Cusco where we will arrive at 6 p.m.
