Full description
Explore the Nevado Humantay, a mountain with active glacier tongues. View its beauty and discover its ice caves. Learn about the minerals that cause the lake to become its stunning color. Start your adventure with a drive to the Mollepata District. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the district to provide the fuel you will need for the trek. Travel to Soraypampa and begin the walk up to the Humantay Lagoon. Experience incredible views of both the Salcantay and Humantay peaks.  Reach the Humantay Lagoon and the long trek will be more than worth it when you see the views.

A spectacular tour

We loved the experience! My mistake was to go without acclimatizing to Cusco first. What most affects is the height more than the walk itself. The reward is an incredible view of the lagoon! I recommend wearing trekking shoes because if it rains it can become slippery. It is a very complete tour with breakfast and lunch included (very rich everything). Highly recommended!

very beautiful, the only thing that weighed was the age, thank you very much.

It was hard for me to arrive, I am 62 years old and I decided to get it by my means, very good the very helpful guide boy, and was always pending, it is a unique experience and I owe it to all of you for making it live, thank you very much

The tour was very good is one of the tours that have a beautiful destination, however if I would like to make some comments about it: The bus or van we were traveling in was already very old and the air conditioning was fatal it did not cool anything, the food very rich however I suggest to include the drink in the cost and the truth is very limited in portions there were many people who were hungry in my group, finally the guide spoke very little in terms of explanations however I must discard that he was always very dependent on the group.
