WHAT IS THE HUMANTAY LAGOON?
Cusco without a doubt does not cease to surprise us since it contains the most curious and unusual landscapes, sometimes we can even say almost interplanetary landscapes such as the mountain of colors, place that you can know about them here, which is the Rainbow Mountain
The humantay lagoon is formed as a thaw product of a large snow-capped mountain that in turn is part of a mountain range called the vilcabamba mountain range.
What makes the humantay lagoon characteristic is the natural color that it possesses, since it does not have much marine flora in its waters, it has an indescribable color in words, but understandable to the eyes, forming a unique landscape when travelers seek to capture the ideal moment with its cameras that want so much to capture landscapes experiences and moments all this and more make it an ideal place that you must visit if you travel to Cusco Peru.
However, the geographical environment of this lagoon is also unique since it serves as the first camp on the Salkantay tour.
HOW TO GET TO THE HUMANTAY LAKE
Very early in the morning we will embark on a trip of 2 and a half hours from the city of Cusco to the town of Mollepata, this time is enough to enjoy the Andean landscape and the warm valleys that bring so much harmony with it. In this town we will be able to enjoy breakfast, since you will once again board the bus to travel to the Soraypampa community.
Soraypampa is the town from which we will start in the direction of the humantay lagoon, the only thing to do is follow a one-way road, it should be said that there is no concern about getting lost since the end of this road is the Humantay lagoon.
The Humantay lagoon witnessed various events carried out by its own visitors, such as requests for hands, payments to the land, ceremonies with Andean teachers, coin tossing to conceive a wish, and romantic postcards that are easily virilized on social networks thanks to the unique landscape of this place.
For the return to Cusco we will take the same route there, but not before enjoying a lunch with Novo Andean food as well as the organic products of the area.
