  • In only one day, explore one of Peru’s most incredible places.

  • Reach the Laguna Humantay and enjoy its dazzling sceneries.

  • Visit the enchanting towns of Mollepata and Soraypampa.


There are countless options of places to visit from Cusco, Peru. However, it could be difficult to choose one that adapts to your schedule and budget. Therefore, I created this 1 day program to Laguna Humantay, departing from Cusco.

On this hiking adventure, we’ll get to appreciate the dazzling sceneries of the Andes. Also, we’ll have the chance to admire the unique flora and fauna throughout the valley mountains, and around Laguna Humantay.

After picking up all the participants from their hotels early in the morning, around 4:00 a.m., our adventure begins. Thereon, we’ll drive for about 2 hours until we get to the enchanting town of Mollepata. Then, we’ll have a nutritious breakfast, and prepare to continue on our trip for 1 more hour approximately towards Soraypampa. Upon arrival, we’ll get ready for our trekking expedition.

The trek is the perfect opportunity to take fantastic pictures. And upon arrival at Laguna Humantay we’ll have free time to truly take in the beauty of this breathtaking place. After admiring this marvelous lagoon, we’ll head back to our camp, where we’ll have lunch. Finally, to end our tour, we’ll drive back to Cusco, where we’ll drop you off, at around 17:30.

I also guide other trips. For instance, check this 15-day guided expedition: Santa Cruz trek + Nevado Pisco climb, if you have more time, and wish to keep exploring Peru.
