    Humantay Lake
    Stop: 40 minutes - Admission excluded
    After we pick you up at your hotel, we will start our adventure to the Humantay Lagoon with a 3.5 hour-drive in to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). In Soraypampa we will have a delicious breakfast to start our day well before beginning our trek. From Soraypampa we will start our trek up to the Humantay Lagoon (4200 m.a.s.l.) with beautiful views and if the sky is clear enough, we can see the impressive snow-capped Salkantay and Humantay. It is a 1.5-hour-walk to the lagoon with a low to moderate difficulty, and more than worth it when you see the magical view. We will have enough time to take pictures and enjoy its beautiful views. After some free time, we will start our descent to Soraypampa, which is a lot easier than the way up. In Soraypampa lunch will await us and after some rest we return to Cusco where we will arrive around 5:00pm

This tour said it was in English and it was not. After our tour guide said the opening message to the group in Spanish, I was expecting it to be repeated in English and it was not. When I asked her to say it in English, she said, “my English is not so good.” When I messaged the tour operator about it they said she is bilingual. She is not bilingual. She didn’t tell us anything in English except that we had 30 minutes at the lake. The entire time we were in the dark about what we were doing. The other guests on the tour that actually were bilingual were more helpful than the guide. The driver drove recklessly the entire time. Passing on blind curves and double yellow lines, tailgating, at one point he hit something and had to get out and check the van. He was taking speed bumps so hard we flew up out of our seats. We were literally scared for our safety. We arrived back 1.5 hours early, which tells you how fast he was driving. And that we could have had more time at the lake. The breakfast was empty crusts of bread and one scrambled egg. The lunch was better but a few of the people couldn’t eat because they were so nauseous from the driver. When we got to the destination, we were using the toilet when the group left us. We had no idea where to go or what to do. We didn’t know which trail to follow as there were a few options. Humantay lake was absolutely beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there but it was not thanks to the tour company at all. She didn’t give us any information about the lake except the name of the mountain range behind the lake and showed us one of the stones that give it color. That was all the information we got. When I expressed my concerns to the company, they did not seem to care. All they said was the guide was bilingual. Which she obviously was not. This was essentially an expensive, dangerous cab ride with a terrible meal and a self guided tour.

One of natures finest spot at 5,200 mtrs. The trek is a bit challenging but exciting, a must do excursion. The serenity and tranquility of the region gives a soothing effect to the trek. The trip organizers and the guide are professionals who are very supportive and helpful. Their knowledge of the region is immense. Everybody in the group was overwhelmed by the trek and the hospitality of the organizers.
