This wonderful tour will take us to the base camp of Soraypampa. Here we will find a variety of camps which are used by many people who make their trek to the Salkantay mountain and then Machu Picchu. We will have some impressive views of the Vilcabamba mountain range. Much will depend on the weather, but almost always we will see the Salkantay and Humantay snowy peaks. Right at the base of this snowy mountain after a 3 hour walk we will get to see this impressive lagoon.
We recommend the walk to People of all ages.
The trip will begin very early in the morning in the lobby of your hotel in Cusco where our selected guide and driver will pick you up, we will make a trip in the car of approximately three and a half hours until we reach Soraypampa. The walk will begin, Soraypampa is at 12000 Feet the distance we will travel is approximately two kilometers. The walk is ascending for two hours, everything will depend on the rhythm that we take during the ascent, we will have a beautiful view of the Humantay snow-capped mountain, we will make several stops to rest until we finally reach our destination, the Humantay lagoon. It is located at an altitude of 14000 feet. While we do the walk we will see a panorama of snow-capped mountains, impressive natural landscapes and a great diversity of flora and fauna until we reach La “Laguna de Humantay”. It is turquoise due to the minerals found at the bottom of the lagoon which is fed by the glaciers of the mountain with the same name and is considered a jewel of nature. After some free time to take photos, we will continue this time descending the same way back to Soraypampa where we will enjoy our box lunch box and after this we will return to Cusco and return to your hotel.

We were recommended this company by our neighbor. Ruben/Juan was great with questions and provided a lot of valuable information as I was planning parts on my own instead using a set tour, partially due to wanting to climb one of the optional peaks which you need to book months in advance. We then hit a snag with my wife’s passport and Ruben happily rearranged the tour for us even though we gave last minute notice.
Our tour guide Wagner met us where the bus dropped us of (can be arranged to pick up from your hotel as well), and we spent the next two hours learning a lot about the history of the site and he took us away from the crowds, and accommodated our photos requests. After we hung around and explored on our own until it was time to leave….
FANTASTIC!!! From start to finish! Amazing Andean Adventures was in charge for our entire 8 day trip to Peru. Every detail and pick up was perfect. Every driver and guide was great! Thank you Kivin and Joaquin for finding my camera!
There was one special guide that we will never forget. Dany met us at our hotel in Agnes Calientes and was very patient as our train was late arriving. His knowledge of the history and culture of the Incans made the tour of Machu Picchu come alive! We were fortunate to have Dany for two days, always upbeat, helpful, fun, and competent. The Cusco City Tour was also amazing with the continuing history making us feel like we were actually there in the time of the Inca rule. Magical…
We traveled to Cusco this December with a three day private tour planned with Danny. My mom had done a similar tour with Danny and recommended him/amazing andean adventures to us! Our three day adventure was pretty much perfect; danny was always early to meet us, super friendly, with great english and tons of knowledge to share about the ruins and inca historical sites we visited. He even made the rain clear up so we could get a perfect view of machu picchu after our hike. On day one we went from our hotel to various destinations in sacred valley, which I worked with the company to plan so that we would hit all the spots I wanted to. They were helpful and accommodating in building a highly individualized itinerary…
