About Laguna Humantay

Laguna Humantay is a glacial lake that is rapidly gaining popularity. Laguna Humantay lies on the foothills of Mountain Humantay. The glaciers from this mountain melt and erode into this turquoise lagoon. Laguna Humantay lies along the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. This is one of the impressive sights that can be visited in a day from Cusco.
