We love taking travelers up to see Humantay Lake – this tour is also known as the Lake Humantay Tour, Humantay Lagoon Tour, or Tour Laguna Humantay in Spanish). The Humantay Lake tour from Cusco involves a relatively challenging hike up past 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) to the region’s turquoise gem, which gets its name from the Humantay mountain. Perfect for nature lovers, this increasingly popular trek is the third most popular tour after Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain for the fresh mountain air and magnificent views of the pristine, sacred glacier lake surrounded by the snow-capped Andes mountains.
