We created this 1 Day Humantay Trek for those nature lovers who do not dispose with too many days. We arranged this trek to Humantay in a way that you will be able to enjoy spectacular views, exotic flora and fauna, beautiful valleys and imposing snowcapped mountains, especially at Humantay Lake.



Day 1: Cusco – Soraypata – Humantay Lake

04:30 – 8:30: Pick up from lodging – Mollepata – Breakfast
Early in the morning, between 4:00 and 4:30, we pick you up at the lodge and start the approximately 2-hour drive. You will see beautiful natural scenery until you reach the small town of Mollepata (2,803 m / 9,186ft) where you will recharge your batteries with a delicious breakfast.
09:00 – 12:00: Mollepata – Soraypampa – Hike to Humantay
After breakfast, we will start the trip to Soraypampa camp (3,800m / 12,467) where the ascent begins for an hour and a half to the Humantay Lagoon, located in the Vilcabamba mountain range (4,200 m / 13,780). On this route you will be able to see alpacas, llamas and vicuñas in the middle of the colorful mountains; and if the sky is clear, you will see the snow-capped mountains Salkantay and Humantay, known as “Apus” or spirits of the mountains.
The route is classified with moderate difficulty, so if you do not have the necessary physical condition, it is recommended to tour the Humantay Lagoon on horseback to not only lighten the journey but also diversify the adventure.
Finally, you arrive at the Humantay Lagoon where there is enough time to take pictures and enjoy the scenery.
12:00 – 17:00: Return to Soraypampa – Lunch – Cusco
After contemplating the marvel of the thaw and the Andean nature, it is time for a private transfer to Mollepata, where you will enjoy a delicious and well-deserved lunch.

Happy to have chosen this destination, we return to Cusco, arriving at 17:00 approximately.
The best thing about traveling with ATV CUSCO is having expert guides and passionate travelers, who accompany you on an unforgettable adventure that enriches your life.
