With this program we will visit one of the new tourist circuits of Cusco. The "Humantay Lagoon" is a natural attraction located in the village of Soraypampa, formerly only visited by those who ventured to make the trek to the Salkantay, but now it has become one of the most visited places by travelers. Visiting the Humantay Lagoon will not take you more than 1 day, the walk is easy if you have previously acclimatized yourself in Cusco and the reward for this effort will be the wonderful landscape that is observed in this turquoise lagoon.

The "Humantay Lagoon" is turquoise due to the mineral found in the bottom; the lagoon is fed by the glaciers of the mountain and is considered a jewel of nature.
