Humantay, is a snow-covered mountain that is part of the Vilcabamba mountain range and gives rise to the formation of this splendid turquoise lagoon that is fed by the glaciers of the mountain of the same name and that is a jewel of nature in the Salkantay route. The Humantay Lake is located in the province of Anta, Cusco area, and this is how the thousand-year-old city of Cusco surprises us once again, presenting a new alternative for travelers who want to enjoy nature. The natural landscape at the foot of the snow surrounded by imposing glaciers, this walk is worth it, since the landscapes are incredible with easy access to reach.

I found out about Humantay Lake by chance on Instagram, and I am so glad I went. It was raining when we left Cusco, but by the time we started walking, it was clear and could see blue sky. After about an hour of hiking, what a view! Thanks for the guide and a driver for taking
