Humantay Lagoon, why is it so visited?

The Humantay lagoon tour is one of the best trekking experiences in Cusco. The Humantay lagoon is outstanding for its crystalline blue waters because it is located between the mountains of the Andes mountains and also because it is surrounded by an incredible landscape.

Humantay Lagoon

The Humantay lagoon, today is visited by hundreds of tourists. Among the adventurers who come to its crystalline waters are those travelers who prefer to escape the bustle of the city and routine and those others who, beyond breathing the 100% pure air of the Andes and observing nature in its wildest state, seek to live unique and unforgettable experiences in their natural environment.

Therefore, if you plan to visit the Humantay Lagoon on your trip to Cusco, it is important to take the following recommendations:

Upon arriving in the city of Cusco, tourists usually have the altitude sickness and for this, local people offer coca tea that allows them to recover their strength. Before making the trek to the Lagoon, acclimatize, spend a few days in Cusco, and visit places with lower altitudes, so you will be ready for this tour. Remember that the Humantay Lagoon is located at 4200 mals.
