Humantay lake

Mollepata District, La Libertad, Peru
9 Kudos
Here is another beautiful place Cusco, Peru. After a long day of crazy hike at the Rainbow Mountain, I couldn’t find myself doing another crazy hike to see glacier, so my husband and his friend went without me while I lay back in our hotel. This is once again another attraction thousands of feet above sea level and lots of hiking. Just like Rainbow mountain, you a rent horse which they also did to help with the hike otherwise it will take much longer and won’t get them enough time to enjoy the view. They said the view was beautiful but hiking back down was a long way. LOL.
