Humantay Lake

Peru Sightseeing

Turquoise and Crystal Clear Waters

Humantay Lake is an ideal destination for nature lovers. It is located at the base of the Humantay Mountain, at an alitude of 4,200 meters above sea level. This lake is fed with fresh snow melted water of the Nevado Salkantay, the highest peak of the Vilcabamba Mountain Range. Because of its beauty, this place was considered sacred by the Incas. Currently, it is the main source of water for the inhabitants of the area. To get there, you must travel three and a half hours by car from Cusco and hike for two hours along a moderately uphill trail.
