Following an early morning pickup, meet your guide and board our private transport for a 2-hour ride until Mollepata town to register in Salkantay route. After breakfast in this same town, you’ll continue for another hour until reaching Soraypampa, from where you’ll have magical views of the snowy Salkantay and Humantay forming a landscape without equal. Here, you’ll start the hike slowly ascending for about an hour to reach the Laguna Humantay. As your guide leads you through these wonderlands of different shades, you’ll learn about the history of these lands, the endemic flora, and the fauna along with other features of the Peruvian highlands.



Finally, located above 4300 meters above sea level, you’ll meet the Humantay Lake which is on foot of the same-named glacier mountain. Take this opportunity for extraordinary and magical photoshoots. You’ll then explore the place for about one or two hours with even a dip into its turquoise waters. At the end of exploration, you’ll take a descent stroll back to Soraypampa and the return trip to Mollepata where you’ll stop for lunch. Finally, sit back and relax as you are taken by our private transport back to Cusco arriving around 5:00 pm.
