You will surely be impressed with the panoramic view of seeing the turquoise lake at 4200 meters asl (13779ft) close to an astounding glacier. Get ready to take tons of photos!

Best Time To Humantay Lake? April - November is the best time to visit. During the rainy season of December to February, weather can be difficult.
During rainy season in Humantay Lake - Cloudy but epic! See the clouds through the mountains!
