Day Trip to Humantay Lake Small Group Trekking Tour

This 1-day trekking tour to the Humantay lake is one of the most beautiful tours in all of Cusco. Together with your local guide, you will hike for around 1.5 - 2 hours until reaching the crystal-clear lake located at 4200m above sea level. In comparison to other agencies, we leave Cusco early so that we will get to the lake as one of the first groups. Also, we stay for around one hour so you can take the best photos of the the lake and its incredible snow-capped mountain in the background. The only time you see large tourist groups is when descending, that's guaranteed. Get to know one of the most beautiful sights close to Cusco in a small group of 2-8 people!
