We had a great day in the mountains!
The only problem about this tour was that they confused something with our pick-up time. Our pick up was appointed for 4 am, but instead we were picked up at 5 am. You know, we could have had 1 one of extra sleep instead.
But nevertheless, the rest of the day was amazing!
Our guide was super helpful and friendly.
Note, that the hike up is quite difficult, so be prepared for a work out.
But on your way up you will enjoy great views!
And when we finally reached Humanity Lake Oh, it was magnificent!
We had enough time to have rest next to Humanity Lake and to enjoy its view.
The way down was much easier than the way up.
Great tour! I recommend it to everyone who goes to Cusco!

The hike was really lovely. The drive up could be considered scary but was great to access something off the beaten path. I would recommend going to Humantay Lake, but I would not recommend using this company. We were picked up by a taxi at 5 am and then dropped off at a gas station. A few minutes later, the bus full of other tourists came along and picked this up. This did not seem normal, and I was questioning the safety of this, so if this is how the pickup normally happens, there needs to be better communication from the company in advance.

We booked an English-speaking tour, but we were among only 5 in our nearly 20-person group who spoke English. The guide spoke only basic English, so while things were explained in detail to the group in Spanish, the English explanation was brief if it happened at all. For example, the 15-minute Spanish explanation of the local surroundings at the end of the hike was boiled down to a 6 minute English explanation I timed it after noticing the pattern.

We ate breakfast and lunch at the same location, and the food was fine.

The most important thing was that we made it to the mountain and did the hike, and that happened. Just don't expect much from the actual tour guide if you have the same one we did.

Once there, it was amazing and worth it.Landslide on way added 3hr delay and almost canceled trip. Renting horses was the best choice as it was a steep climb and we had not yet adjusted to the altitude. It is a long drive on winding dirt roads.We got to-go bfast to save lost time. Dinner was good.
