Trip Advisor Reviews

Come See Peru has earned TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for consistently receiving 5-star reviews of our tours in Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tours. This recognition highlights our exceptional service and dedicated attention to our clients.

Private tour of moray, Maras, ollaytamtambo and pisac Highly recommend this company - Carlos was a great guide, perfect English, passionate about his work and gave us many insights during our two days of guidance. We liked the first day so much that we booked another day with him. Cristobal the driver was lovely & friendly too and drove safely and well. The ruins were so much more interesting and rewarding with Carlos' knowledge. He took us to the less touristy parts of the ruins and provides architecture insights and history background as well. We also got lots of good food tips from him too and information about Peru and the Cusco region. We were initially hesitant in booking as it seems a bit expensive; however we would recommend that you just go ahead and book your tour! It's great and really worth it!

Outstanding Private Tour with Come See Peru We did a half day tour of the Sacred Valley, Moray, and Maras Salt Mines from Ollantaytambo with Carlos and Mario and they were outstanding and knowledgeable. Booking the tour was easy and they were very responsive to answer all my questions. They were right on time to pick us up from the hotel and their planning was perfect as we missed most of the crowd when we visited Moray and Maras Salt Mines. Carlos is professional, kind, passionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Having both of them who knew all the ins and outs of the area also take care to make sure we enjoyed ourselves made the entire trip memorable.

Wonderful and Productive Private Tour Wonderful tour by Carlos and superb driving by Mario. We were looking for transportation options from Ollantaytambo to Cusco, so figured why not get a tour out of it. No regrets. Enjoyed seeing Ollantaytambo and Moray ruins, Maras Salt Mines, and Pisac. They were very flexible with the start time. And not to mention, Carlos is an excellent storyteller and an amazing photographer. I highly recommend tours by this operator. Cheers!

Amazing tri to Rainbow Mountain What an amazing experience! I decided last minute to go see Rainbow Mountain and wanted it to be a special experience. Juan Carlos organized everything, making sure I was comfortable with the hike, the trip and the food for the day. My guide Matt was very knowledgeable, told me so many stories, shared traditions, essential oils and made the experience unforgettable. The drive was long but very comfortable, the food was really good and the views are just magical. The kindness of all people involved made the trip even more special. Thank you!

Best tour ever! Best tour ever!! ComeSeePeru brought us around the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu over three days from Urubamba. Carlos, our guide, was excellent, informative and knowledgeable - he took care to plan our schedule so we visited each site at the least crowded times. Mario, our driver, was also very skilled, and the van was very spacious and comfortable. Carlos and Mario went above and beyond to make our Sacred Valley experience a great one. We were sadly down with food poisoning, and Carlos helped with altitude sickness medicine and tea and drove us to the nearest pharmacies to get medicine. When we were tired after having to walk to the Moray ruins due to a road closure, Mario also drove up by a separate route to meet us by the end point, so we wouldn’t have to walk back again. All in all, ComeSeePeru made our honeymoon experience in Peru an amazing one! 100% would recommend for anyone looking for a thoughtful, well planned and insightful tour in the Sacred Valley.

The perfect private tour experience The BEST way to tour is with a small private tour and the team at come see Peru made the experience absolutely incredible. Nothing was rushed and the whole experience was calm, fun and educational. I booked really last minute at 9pm the night before our tour, Julio was a great help and was able to accommodate all of our requests. He arranged a slightly later collection for us as we had just spent a day travelling by minibus. Carlitos our guide was superb, his English is great. He was full of knowledge and able to answer every question we had about the 2 sites we visited. We also made an extra stop in Moras at a local families store for products from the salt mines and an additional explanation of how the salt flats are used. Nothing was too much trouble for our driver Cristóbal who was glad to stop at additional view points along the way and even took us to a fantastic lunch spot before driving us back to Urumbamba. The whole team went above and beyond our expectations and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Humantay Lake Hike

Difficulty:

The hike to Humantay Lake is shorter but steeper than the trek to Rainbow Mountain. From the trailhead to the Lake it may take you about 1 hour, keeping a steady pace with a few breaks along the way. The ascent is continuous, like climbing stairs the whole way. The trail is steep and sometimes slippery, especially in some sections. To walk the trail comfortably, we highly recommend hiking shoes, which provide stability and protection against the terrain.

The hike begins at an altitude of 12,700 feet, where adventurers embark on the exciting trek to Humantay Lake. As hikers make their way up through the rugged Andean landscape, they gradually reach the impressive altitude of 13,900 feet. This ascent offers a challenging but rewarding experience, allowing hikers to immerse themselves in the beauty of Andes. Along the way, be prepared to encounter varied terrain and breathtaking views, making every step into the lake a memorable adventure.

The hike to Humantay Lake typically takes 1.5 hr (the longest) from the starting point. The exact duration may vary depending on factors such as, speed and fitness level.

Know What to Pack for Humantay Lake Private Tour from Cusco

There is a lot to consider before you leave for your Peru journey, such as what supplies and gear are needed. It is important to know that the trails in the area can be treacherous so make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of food, water, and sun protection. Be prepared with a full first aid kit and don’t forget to bring your camera for stunning memories of these breathtaking mountains!

  • Original Passport: Before leaving your hotel be sure to bring your original passport, note that if you do not bring it you will not be able to visit Machu Picchu. The passport must be the same one you sent us to buy the Machu Picchu tickets.
  • Clothing: The weather in the Sacred Valley is very enjoyable, but it does not mean that it does not rain at all. That’ s why it is important to always carry a pack of T-shirts and add warmth with long-sleeved clothing and a fleece jacket.
  • Footwear: Comfortable walking shoes or sneakers with good traction are perfect for hiking in and around the Inca archaeological complexes in the Sacred Valley.
  • Sun protection: Do not forget a quality sunscreen. Long-sleeved shirts and pants are recommended for better protection from the sun. Bring a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. The sun is quite intense depending on the place you are visting.
  • Rainy season: For those viting the Sacred Valley from Ollantaytambo during the rainy season, pack a waterproof jacket or a travel-size umbrella or plastic ponchos. Plastic ponchos are available to buy in Cusco and the Sacred Valley area.
  • Bottled water: Staying hydrated is important for preventing altitude sickness. At Come See Peru, we provide a free water bottle to all our clients for all our tours of the Sacred Valley from Ollantaytambo.
  • Money: Do not forget to carry some cash in Peruvian currency.
    Also have some coins and small notes in your pockets since often smaller shops, kiosks or vendors don’t have enough change.
  • Snacks: Energy bars, candies, cookies, etc (you can also buy fresh fruits at one of the villages’ markets).
  • Insect repellent: There are mosquitoes in the secred valley. We recommend opting for non-aerosol options to be more eco-friendly. Bands, patches and lotions are less likely to affect the people around you.
  • Toilet paper: Some restrooms do not provide toilet paper or antibacterial hand gel.
  • Personal first-aid kit: Our tour guides are forbidden to give any madication to tourits. These rules come from the government that does not allow the tour guide to use pills due to different names and components of drugs by country. For this reason, we always advise taking a basic first aid kit, pills for most common problems.

Useful Information about Humantay Lake

Location of the Humantay Lagoon

The Humantay turquoise lagoon is located on the slopes of the Humantay snow-capped mountain, northwest of the city of Cusco, in the community of Soraypampa, district of Mollepata, province of Anta, Cusco region, in Peru.

Altitude:

  • Altitude: 4200 masl (13,780 feet).
  • Coordinates: Latitude south: 13°24’41.72″ and Longitude west: 72°37’2.43″.
  • Length: 618 meters long and 164 meters wide (approximately).

Climate and Temperature

The climate of Humantay Lagoon is generally temperate during the days of the dry season (April to November); frigid during the night and early morning hours; and rainy and cloudy skies during the rainy season (December to March).

And the temperature in and around Humantay Lagoon normally ranges between 4° C° and 17° C°.

Distance from Cusco to Humantay Lake

The distance between the city of Cusco and the Humantay Lagoon is 123 km and is divided as follows:

  • Asphalted road between Cusco and Mollepata: 98.5 km
  • Motorized trail between Mollepata and Soraypampa: 22 km
  • Road between Soraypampa and Humantay Lagoon: 2.5 km

Difficulty of walking to Humantay

  • The difficulty and level of exigency of the walk to the Humantay lagoon is: average – moderate.
  • The path first climbs a steep slope, then meanders along a rocky slope, and finally descends to a small creek through which the calm and cold waters flow, born only a few meters from the Humantay Lagoon.
  • Apart from the stones of the road, the cold and the altitude, the walk is relatively easy, and does not take more than 40 minutes, on average.

Coloration of the Humantay Lake

The turquoise waters of the Humantay Lagoon owe their magical colour to the crystalline waters of the snow melt and to the microalgae of the species Microcystis aeruginosa and Oscillatoria.

However, this impressive coloration is very vulnerable to human action. The unauthorized entry of some travelers into the interior of the lagoon has caused the shores to change from turquoise to grey. For this reason, it is forbidden to enter the lagoon.
