This tour is for travellers who love adventure and observing wildlife in their natural state. As well as travellers who find themselves short on time. The incredible location of “Laguna Humantay” with beautiful snow-capped mountains, with the presence of the snowcapped Humantay mountain accompanying us on our walk. Feel the sky and the mountains with the beautiful dance of the Condor in the great Apurimac canyon at an altitude of 3,800 m, the largest flying in the world, that can reach a height of 6,000 m which feasts on the meat from animals like Andean guinea pig, birds, sheep, llamas, deer and fox, ending the day with beautiful sunset which will bless your eyes. If you are a huge fan of lagoons then you can opt for a tour of the 7 lagunas Cusco, in order to be able to witness the natural beauty of them all.

The Laguna Humantay tour with the inclusion of the Chonta Canyon is a wonderful full day tour, perfect for solo as well as group travellers. However, if you find yourself running out of time, or money, or either the Humantay lake or Canyon tour is not one that you believe you would enjoy participating in, I would suggest that you check out the solo tour itineraries for either one.


This set of tours is separated by a path of approximately 2 hours and a mountain range that make this tour a bit complicated but very beautiful as it will allow you to dawn in a beautiful snowy valley and sunset at the top of a canyon where there is an unforgettable sunset.
