Humantay Lake Trek & Mountain Bike Excursion
The Humantay Lake Trek & Mountain Bike Excursion is a fully packed day trip from Cusco that allows our guests to become fully immersed into the high Andes. After an early morning departure from Cusco we will drive to the town of Soraypampa and begin our trek to Humantay Lake, located at 4,300 meters (14,107 feet). A brief stop will be made at Tarawasi Archaelogical Site to view Inca ruins enroute to the lake. The turquoise waters of Humantay Lake lay peacefully at the base of the picturesque Humantay Glacier and is one of the most stunning places in the Cusco Region of Peru. Once at the lake guests will have time at leisure for photography and exploring the surrounding area. We will then make our way back down the mountain for a gourmet box lunch prior to our departure from this serene landscape.
After lunch we will begin our downhill bike ride! The trail will meander through the Andes from Soraypampa to the town of Mollepata. This ride is mostly downhill and suited for beginners.
This full day excursion is the perfect way for guests to experience adventure sports in the high Andes! Our personalized / private service with gourmet meals and only the most experienced guides of the region would be a great inclusion to any Peru vacation!
