Humantay Lagoon, next to the snow mountain

Our adventure begins around 5:00 am with the pick up at your hotel. On a touristic van we will head to the Mollepata village in Apurimac river valley. Breakfast will be with the tour group and afterwards there’s a hike towards Soraypampa (3.900 m), a large green plain where we will have a stop.

After an hour and a half of walking along the magnificent Cusco geography, we will arrive to the wonderful spot: the high snowy mountains standing around the incredible beauty of the Humantay Lagoon.
