Humantay Lake



Latin America is recognized worldwide for the natural beauties that are hidden within countries like Peru.

This lagoon formed by the thaw of the Humantay mountain presents a unique landscape of the district of Mollepata (Anta).

In Peru an adventure destination is Cusco, which guards the route to the Apu Salkantay, an attraction that moves with the beauty of the landscape and keeps years of history in archaeological zones.

As part of the route to the Salkantay mountain, you can access walking or mountain biking, as well as lending itself to some other camping activities.

With a mystical air, the lagoon is visited by shamans and tourists from all over the world to leave offerings to the Pachamama, deity that represents mother Earth in the Inca culture.
