I recently went to the snowy lagoon humantay a short trip but tremendous experience.
Enough was that day to plan the full salkantay tour to Machu Picchu for 5 days.
Touring and knowing the route from Cusco to Mollepata later to Soraypampa to know the Lagoon Humantay was one of the incredible experience. The reason for this Post is to know this alternative route to Machu Picchu, I want to tell you the short experience, the landscapes, the emotions, the satisfaction and joy of reaching the lagoon.
The adventure begins from the detour between Mollepata and Soraypampa, a hiking route along a path full of panoramic landscapes of the Mollepata valley.
The walk is approximately 2 Hours where one can appreciate the flora and the beautiful landscape after the journey you arrive until soraypampa.
In this place you can rest take a breath and breathe deeply to continue the ascent towards the lagoon. The climb is about 1 hour and a half to reach the lagoon.
The emotion of arriving the pleasure of seeing the beautiful lagoon feel the satisfaction fills you with peace and tranquility for the soul only to appreciate it and contemplate it.
I did not want to return but the day was saying goodbye to us in return you feel more motivated but glad you do not notice it instantly but seeing your fellow travelers will be more joyful with more energy.
I have nothing more to tell you but I leave this video of the experience of a Spanish tourist that narrates the journey as if it were exciting poetry for the soul. I recommend watching it from Minute 18:26 to listen and see your experience. Very nice story.
