Overview

HUMANTAY LAGOON – SWING – ZIP LINE

CUSCO FULL DAY

 

Humantay Lagoon, is a magical, charming, mesmerizing turquoise lagoon that is surrounded by imposing glaciers that are part of the Andes Mountains, including the majestic Salkantay and Humantay Snowy Mountains. The melting of these snowcaps gives rise to the splendid Humantay lagoon, which will transform your way of seeing nature, enjoying the flora and fauna that will be recorded in your mind and in the wonderful snapshots of the place.
In the same way you can perform various adventurous activities such as mountain biking in its surroundings or stand-up paddling. The weather is frigid, so it is recommended to always wear warm clothes (cap, scarf or scarf, gloves, jacket). Everything we need to not feel too cold.

The Hike to the Humantay Lagoon has a Medium Difficulty, the terrain is hard and with small stones and is a steady and rugged climb, depending on the season, the temperature may drop as you approach the Salkantay snowy. Considering the difficulty of the walk, it is always necessary to have trekking poles. To make this walk to the Humantay Lagoon, it is recommended to have at least a couple of days of acclimatization in high-altitude cities (more than 3000 meters above sea level), in this case in the imperial city of Cusco, this so that during the tour you do not have problems with altitude sickness and can make the walk without major problems, it is recommended to take infusions of “muña” and “the sacred coca leaf”. Drink plenty of fluids, avoid fruits such as apples and beans, the first few days rest as much as possible and keep your body warm.

 

LOCATION: Cusco It is located in the Center- South of the country, in the Andean region.
