PART 2
HUMANTAY LAKE

The Lake of Humantay is highly respected by the residents of Mollepata, as it is their source of water. Formed by glaciers melting from the snowcapped mountain of Humantay. This unique piece of nature increases its intensity of color with the brightness of the sun. Therefore, the more powerful the sun rays, the more turquoise the lake becomes.

You will see some stone towers called “Apechetas” a symbol of respect for the lagoon and the Apus of the area (Guardian Spirits of the Mountains). They are considered sacred beings, as well as alive. You will be granted the opportunity to make an offering from the Sacred Coca leaves and pay your respect towards them, for them to guide you and help you accomplish a safe hike.
Your expert guide will be there by your side throughout the hike, in order to help you, take great photos of you at this delightful location, and with any queries you may have of this natural wonder. After you have soaked in the sights, you will hike back down to Soraypampa, where you will indulge in a gourmet lunch especially prepared for you. All good things must come to an end, and so does this day. You will return to Cusco in private transportation, arriving at 18:30 pm approximately.
