Our  excursion to the Humantay Lake tour 1 day is very awesome, majestic and stunning for all those tourists who come to it; it is important to mention that for a long time the lake was part of the tourist route to the snowy Salkantay, however, for some time, began to make the route to visit the lake in one day and no longer have to make the trek of several days to see it and enjoy it.

If you are looking for new and beautiful landscapes and above all that can be done in one day, we have the Humantay Lake 1 day tour, which is one of the new natural attractions that we are offering, being a new alternative to the traditional tours in the city of Cusco.

The Humantay Lake is located in the province of Anta, district of Mollepata on the route to the snowy Salkantay (6,271 m.a.s.l.). The origin of the Humantay Lake (4,250 masl) is glacial because it originates in the snowy Humantay (5,450 masl) located in the central Peruvian Andes of the Vilcabamba chain whose highest peak is the Salkantay (6,271 masl).
