We will pick you up from your hotel between 4:00 and 4:30 a.m. to leave for our adventure. We will travel approximately 2 hours to the town of Mollepata, located in the lush valley of the Apurímac River. In Mollepata, we will have breakfast and prepare for our next hike. Our journey will continue to Soraypampa. Here, we will begin our hike to Humantay Lake, which is located at an altitude of 4,200 meters.
If the hike is too challenging, you can rent a horse to get to the top (you can decide this on the way). After about 1.5 hours of walking, you will see Lake Humantay, considered sacred in Inca mythology and once you see it, it is easy to understand why.
