What to Expect
We will pick you up between 4:30am and 05:00 am at your hotel lobby in Cusco to board our transport. We will drive you for about 2.5 hours to the beautiful village of Mollepata in the rich countryside of the Apurimac valley enjoying the amazing scenic views before we arrive at Mollepata town. We stop in this village around 30 minutes so you will have the opportunity to have breakfast. Then we will continue our journey towards Soraypamapa campsite (for people that the alternative Inca Trail through Salkantay), the start of our trek, at 3850m (12,600 ft). We will start hiking up a moderate slope for one and a half hours until we reach Humantay Lake at 4,300m (14,107Ft). From this point, we can soak in the spectacular views of the Turquoise waters of Humantay Lake that lay peacefully at the base of the picturesque Humantay Glacier and is one of the most stunning places in the Cusco region. After enjoying the most spectacular views and taking pictures in this magnificent place we will start our downhill trek for 1.5 hours to Soraypamapa Campsite, we will return to the town of Mollepata to enjoy a delicious lunch. Finally, after an amazing day journey, we will travel for 2.5 hours in our transport arriving back in Cusco around 18:00pm.

P.S: If you would like add the Pachamana or Mother Earth ceremonies, please ask so we can include for an extra cost.
