Worth the early wake up call!

The early wake up was worth it for the views!! You’re in the car for quite a while but the breakfast and lunch buffet break up the drive. We spent almost an hour at the lake taking photos and enjoying the view. The hike is tough but there are options to take a horse for around 20USD if you don’t want to walk the way up. Our guide was knowledgeable and always checked in to see how we were doing. Really great experience!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

"Cricket" was very knowledgeable and great energy. He balanced SO-WELL making it fun and engaging and giving people time to themselves to take in the breathtaking views. This is not an easy hike, but he was prepared with oxygen and made sure that everyone was well taken care of. I was so happy with this experience and I recommend this to anyone!

Great experience

Humantay Lake Tour is a great experience. We had a smooth pick up from our hotel (very early) and the organisation was very communicative the day before the trip (What to expect and details about the trip). It is a far bus ride and on our way there we had breakfast at a excellent family run restaurant. After that it goes to Humantay Lake on a dirt road. Since we travelled in rainy season we were prepared for some rain. After a short walk you can decide to take a horse to the top or walk (both are good experiences). The Humantay lake is very stunning and it is a beautiful view with great picture spots. On our way back to Cusco we stopped at the same restaurant for Lunch and again it was very good. A special thank you to our tour guide Freddy. He took great care of us. We had a special situation because the road back was closed due to a mudslide. Freddy and our driver handled the situation very well and he brought us back home safely.

What a feeling! This was a semi difficult hike, but man was it worth it!! It even started to snow on us. There are horses to take you to the lake if you can’t make it. I was determined to make it on foot. And I did, with a few rest breaks. Loved this tour and our guide, Tupac.

Beautiful, perfect day. Yudith was a wonderful guide and the lake itself was surrounded by the most beautiful mountains I have seen. Stunning trip.

Not happy with no drop off at hotel my son and i became seperated and i could not find hotel

Very hard climb i recommend a horse i was trying to do it the whole way without a horse but got one half way up
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Dear, It is stated on our website that it includes pick up from the hotel (in some areas), and does not say we offer drop off at the hotel, not for this kind of reservation, because we do not do it. In fact, we have emailed you with days in advance (14 days to be exact), telling you exactly where would be your drop off. Our drop off is downtown so it is pretty easy to take a cab for a really fair price (about 6 soles). The cab drivers know Cusco very well and could help you finding your hotel, specially a really known one that is the one that you were at. We are not happy with your review because you have received the service you paid for. Take care!

Beautiful Hike

The very early morning start to this tour is very worth it once you get to the lake. The ride for the most part is on smooth road so is easy to sleep. Breakfast and Lunch was great, but be sure to bring snacks because you will sure need a refreshment once you get to the lake. The hike is challanging however doable. I havnt done any hiking in Cusco and I did it without the horses. But again if you are struggling, you get many opportunities to hire the horses all the way up the hike. Well worth it!!!
