Where’s the Humantay Lagoon?

Peru is a country rich with culture and natural beauty. Known for the advanced civilization of the Inca, Peru has many breath-taking destinations, both man-made and natural. Representing one of the many magical locations of natural beauty is Humantay Lake. Laguna Humantay lies 4,200 meters (13,900 ft.) up so it is hidden from view from the ground below.

Located in the Andes of Cusco, Peru, Lake Humantay is in a region extremely rich in Inca history. Located right next to the Salkantay and near the Inca Trail, Lake Humantay is often accessed by hiking. The Salkantay trail runs between the Salkantay and Humantay mountains, which are part of the Vilcabamba mountain range. The water of the lake offers one of the most spectacular views of Cusco, Peru. The hike to Lake Humantay requires some effort and is rated as moderate on the easy to difficult scale. However, the end result of being able to stand in the middle of the snowy mountain peaks, on the edge of a turquoise lake, makes it worthwhile for travelers and hikers alike.

The History of Lake Humantay

Lake Humantay is formed as a product of the thawing of a large snow-capped mountain which in turn is part of a mountain range called the Vilcabamba mountain range. What makes Humantay’s lagoon characteristic is the natural color it has since it does not have much marine flora in its waters, it has an indescribable color in words, but understandable to the eyes, forming a unique landscape when travelers seek to capture the ideal moment with their cameras that are so eager to capture experiences and moments of landscapes all this and more make it an ideal place to visit if you travel to Cusco Peru.

The inhabitants of the area know Laguna Humantay as the Humantay Lagoon and it is believed that the lagoon was a sacred area for the Incas. It was common for people to leave sacred offerings on the edges surrounding the lake.

Today, Lake Humantay is often visited by shamans and other spiritual travelers, as well as by hikers and those who want to find this hidden sacred beauty. Many people still continue the tradition of making these stone offerings. The offerings that are scattered around the lake are very visible. The people of this region call them Apachetas. Apachetas as piles made of rocks stacked on top of other rocks. Sometimes the mounds are small, sometimes the mounds are large. The Apachetas are offered to an Inca culture deity called Pachamama.

It is a common ritual to make an offering when arriving at the lagoon. The process begins by first selecting a rock as an offering to be offered to the Pachamama. Then you thank her for having successfully arrived at the lagoon, as well as ask her to accompany you on your expedition before placing the stone.

How to get to Lake Humantay?

There’s no way to see Lake Humantay from ground level. Lake Humantay is a true gem of Peru and like most gems, it takes some work to reap the rewards. Lake Humantay is located at 4200 meters (13,779 feet) above sea level, but there are several ways to get there.

Your options to reach the Humantay Lagoon from Cusco are almost 4 hours by bus or go to Soraypampa from the historic heart of Cusco and then walk. At the end you decide if you want to take a private or group tour. Private Tour To Humantay Lake is definitely the best option! Depending on your hiking experience and the time you have to visit will help you determine the best option. The full day trip to Lake Humantay is ideal for nature and ecotourism lovers. During the tour we will be able to observe the exotic flora and fauna and appreciate the impressive snow-capped peaks of Humantay and Salkantay. The tour to Lake Humantay starts and ends in the city of Cusco. We also offer a horseback ride to Lake Humantay. For more information please contact us at
