Your Itinerary

Humantay Lake

we pick you up from your hotel between 4:30 to 5:00 am, then a 4-hour-drive to Soraypampa (3850 m.a.s.l.). In Soraypampa we will have a delicious breakfast to start our day well before beginning our trek. In Soraypampa we will start our trek up to the Humantay Lake (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 lake with a low to moderate difficulty, and more than worth it when you see the magical view. It is also possible to rent a horse instead. We will have enough time to take pictures, bring an offer to the Apus, and for the real brave ones; swimming in the lake when it’s sunny! After some free time, we will start our descent to Soraypampa of about 1.5 hours, 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 p.m.

Paradise on earth. Excellent atention from the agensy. Is a must on your visit to cusco. I Will recommend to all My family and Friends.


It was an incredible experience and a dream come true to be able to visit the humantay lagoon, Mega expeditions gave us the necessary support for this. We had breakfast and lunch, which were good, the guide was friendly and told us interesting facts about the place. Very grateful. I highly recommend


The communication with them was great and they kept me updated with details during the pick up process. Our guide Jose was very friendly and kept our morale up during the hike.


On 16th of June I was supposed to go to the excursion of Laguna Humantay-Cusco,Peru as I had reserved. A bus came to pick me up from my hotel in Cusco and after some time the guide informed us that we are going to another excursion (rainbow mountain). After informing her that the wrong bus picked me up, she and the driver told me to get down of the bus. It was 5 am in the morning in a big street in Cusco region where they just saw a car with somebody inside - not a taxi-just a car parked!!!- and they told him to drive me to the bus that I was supposed to be. They also told me to hurry up because they were running out of time! So I was in a car of stranger in a random big street in Cusco region and it was still dark. I insisted before getting inside the car to have a phone number that i could be in contact until the “taxi” driver gets me to the right bus. I was scared, alone, trying to contact my hotel informing them about what was happening. Finally I got to my destination but my whole day was ruined. Mega expeditions is the company with which i travelled. I had heard good stuff about viator and it turned out that i had a very bad experience and this incident was unacceptable! Fortunately I was lucky enough that nothing worse happened and I somehow managed to enjoy the excursion later..


The communication could not have been any better. This company was GREAT. They are there for you 24/7. The lake was also unbelievably beautiful.


The worst day ever...Mega Disappointing. Tour guide refused to use English, food well below oar, lied at border control, tried to coerce extra 15 soles from each tourist on the bus


Shocking experience! I would kot recommend Mega Expeditions for any activities. Bus driver was preoccupied. Guide barely spoke English and needed reminding that there were non Spanish tourists on the bus. He did not accompany tourists to the lake and did not explain or inform us of anything. Did not negotiate horses with locals as discussed and split myself and my sister up, resulting in us not having a shared experience as planned. Food included in the package was below par. Diserted our bus during the drive home, and alternative route options due to strikes, leaving guests uninformed of the situation.


Great trip, everything went smoothly. Though I was not able to make it to the top without assistance from a horse well worth the trip. If you are in Cusco for a few days would recommend fitting this trip.


The hike was so worth it! The view was absolutely incredible. This was also a great tour. The bus was comfortable enough, the breakfast/lunch was good, and Mirabel did a great job to set everyone up for success and give lots of information!


Really great experience and the guide was super nice. The breakfast and the lunch was sooo good, the hike was pretty hard but the view was beautiful.
