Exploring the Majestic Humantay Lake


Nestled high in the Vilcabamba mountain range, Humantay Laguna showcases the true splendor of the Peruvian Andes. Situated between the Salkantay and Humantay mountains, the lake is encompassed by towering peaks and the majestic Humantay Glacier.

As you approach the water’s edge, Humantay Laguna reveals its breathtaking beauty, making it one of the standout highlights of the entire Cusco region. A visit to Humantay Laguna is an absolute must on any travel itinerary in Peru.

Independent Visit to Humantay Laguna

Humantay Laguna is located approximately 4 hours west of Cusco, making it challenging to reach via public transportation. It is generally recommended to hire a taxi for the entire day, covering the 4-hour drive to the lake, the time needed for the hike and exploration, and the 4-hour return journey. However, this can be quite expensive. Hiring a taxi for such a duration can start at around £50/$75, but if you are in a group of four, it becomes a more cost-effective option. Traveling alone to Humantay Laguna independently can be costly.

Estimated Total Cost: Taxi (Split between 4) + Entrance fee = Approx. £14/$20 (excluding food/drink)
