This is a one-day hike to visit the beautiful turquoise lake at the base of the glacial mountain of Humantay, located in the Vilcabamba mountain range. This is nature at its most spectacular, as a special algae in the lake, combined with the reflection of the surrounding greenery, the blue sky and the splendor of the Andean sun mix to create a deep shade of turquoise blue that is very rare indeed.

We will pick up at 4 am from your hotel within Cusco city. The drive itself is most interesting as we have amazing views of the mountains as we drive along, also passing through a few indigenous villages and cornfields along the route to the trailhead. The drive to Soraypampa is about 3 hours, and we will be starting our hike at an elevation of 3800 meters/12,460 feet. Here, surrounded by majestic mountains and valleys, your hiking team will prepare a delicious breakfast to give you lots of energy before we start our ascent. The uphill hike is 1½ to 2 hours, with your guide pointing out the various flora and fauna along the way, perhaps stopping for a postcard-perfect shot of the snow-capped peaks here and there.
At the top is the treasure! Magnificent Blu Lagoon, a very special shade of deep turquoise with snow-capped Humantay glacial mountain in the background! Of course, descent is usually a bit quicker than your initial climb, and when we get to the bottom, we’ll have a delicious lunch prepared by our chef to reward you! With our hearts and belly full, we will start our 3-hour return to Cusco in our private van.
