In the very early morning, we depart Cusco, with your guide in the direction of Soraypampa (3850 mt.) to start the thrilling hike to Humantay Lake (4300 mt.). We will pass many towns and lovely landscapes until reaching Mollepata Village (2900 mt.), where we will have a hot breakfast.  After breakfast, continue in our vehicle to Sorayapampa, the starting point of our exhilarating hike. Hike for about 1.5 hours climbing gradually, catching striking vistas of the glacial mountains of Peru, vegetation, and lovely birds. Finally, behold the dramatic turquoise-colored Humantay Lake brilliantly sparkling in front of us, nestled comfortably between the immense snow-covered mountains of Humantay and Salkantay looming over it. The panoramic views are unbelievable, to say the least. You will have time to wander around Humantay Lake and take many pictures.  Later after a stellar experience, it’s time to retrace our trail descending down to Soraypampa.  Our waiting transport will take us to Mollepata to have lunch.  After lunch, it’s time to return to Cusco arriving around 6:00 pm.
