Full description
Explore the Nevado Humantay, a mountain with active glacier tongues. View its beauty and discover its ice caves. Learn about the minerals that cause the lake to become its stunning color.

Start your adventure with a drive to the Mollepata District. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the district to provide the fuel you will need for the trek. Travel to Soraypampa and begin the walk up to the Humantay Lagoon. Experience incredible views of both the Salcantay and Humantay peaks. 

Reach the Humantay Lagoon and the long trek will be more than worth it when you see the views. Stop for a well earned rest and take as many photos as you like.
