    We were in 6 people accompanied by Ghilton, who does this tour almost everyday, has great experience on this trek and helped us to have an incredible experience. We did the climb by horses (80 soles each), since we were exhausted from the previous day, and the steep ascent.

    Our trip to Humantay Lake was an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide, Solange, was funny, supportive, and gave us confidence to do the trek. The hike up takes about two hours. It was challenging because of the altitude however Solange made sure to stop for breaks.
