If you are looking for beautiful new walks and especially in a single day the Humantay Lake Full Day tour is one of the new natural attractions that we are offering. Humantay Lake Trek is a new alternative to traditional tours in Cusco.

The Humantay lake is located in the province of Anta, Mollepata district on the route to the snowy Salkantay (6.271 m.s.n.m.).

The origin of the Humantay Lake (4 250 masl) is glacier because it originates from the Humantay snow melt (5,450 masl) located in the central Peruvian Andes of Vilcabamba range whose highest snowfall is Salkantay Mountain (6,271 m).

This mountain landscape that surrounds this beautiful lagoon is a unique experience, most tourists prefer to visit the humantay lake by time, because this visit takes us 1 day like Rainbow Mountain Trek, it is ideal for people who have a short time in their itinerary.
