This experience was incredible. We made some incredible friends that we will continue to meet up with in the future. With regards to the hike, it was a bit tough on one of our family members but otherwise the rest of us got used to the elevation quickly. The last 800m of the hike was a bit more difficult but so worth it in relation to the views at the end! Please take this trip - thank you to our guide Jerson, you were exceptional!

This was a difficult trek for me but I made it after lessons learned from Rainbow Mountain. Once you have climbed that elevation of approx. 4200m the reward of magnificence of the lake will remind you that it was all worth it. If you get motion sickness, drink plenty of coco leaf tea, and/or eat coco chocolate along the way and stay hydrated. As the group split with those who were more experienced hikers went ahead, the guide made sure those of us who were beginners were okay the entire time. Breakfast was meagre but lunch was plentiful, and oh so needed after the trek. All in all, this was a beautiful day and an experience well worthy of one's time. Great value for the money. I highly recommend.

Highly recommend! Best value out of all other humantay lake tours - everything was included except for voluntary tip. We had Tupac as our guide. He was super knowledgeable and understanding of different skill levels in the group (there were 10 ppl total on this tour). Tupac was very accommodating! Me & my wife are avid hikers, so he let us go ahead at our own pace and stayed with those who were slower. We were one of the first people on the mountain so we got great pictures before everyone else came & had time to explore both sides of the lake. Would do it again with him!
