Detailed Itinerary

Full Day: Cusco – Soraypampa – Humantay Lagoon – Cusco

The adventure begins early. We’ll pick you up between 4:00 AM – 04:35 AM from your hotel/hostel to then make way in our private transport to Mollepata (roughly 4 hour journey). There, we’ll enjoy an energizing breakfast that will get us ready for the trek. Once done, we head to Soraypampa, the starting point.

Once there, we begin our trek up to Humantay Lagoon! We’ll enjoy astonishing scenery and breathtaking landscapes through the 1.5 hour hike.

Once in Humantay Lagoon, we’ll enjoy the glory of your high-altitude achievements and take some photos until we make our way back to Soraypampa.

In Soraypampa we will take our van for half an hour more to get our restaurant in Mollepata where we will enjoy a well-deserved lunch and get some rest. Later that afternoon, we will return to Cusco city where we will arrive at San Francisco square (near the main square) at around 6:00 PM.
