Peru is a country rich in culture and geological wonders. Each department has its own unique and different attractions that makes this country one of the best destinations in the world. One of the departments of Peru with more tourist visits is Cusco, thanks to Machupicchu and other tourist attractions. Among all these we have the Humantay Lake. It awakens the adventurous spirit of those who visit it.
This lake is located approximately 30 minutes from the city of Cusco in the community of Soraypampa, district of Mollepata, at approximately 4,250 meters above sea level. This destination is considered one of the most impressive and spectacular places in Cusco for its wonderful nature decorated with snowfall and Andean flora.
This attraction has become one of the most popular, climbing up to the third place of the most visited destinations in Cusco reaching around 500 visitors a day, followed by the mountain of 7 colors (Vinicunca) and Machupicchu. As a result, the regional government will carry out a sustainable use plan for this sector to help the communities and villages that are around this attraction. This lake is located in the buffer zone of the archaeological park of Machupicchu, so the territorial reorganization of the Humantay area will be carried out as the first phase.
Governor Jean Paul Benavente explained that this plan will help the environmental protection of this place and that it will bring about sustainable use for the region.
In addition to its natural attraction t, you can also perform other activities such as the Pachamama ritual where different volcanic stones are placed as thanks to Mother Earth.
In addition, there are also places to camp where the main attraction is to watch the sunrise and sunset.
