Laguna Humantay has become a new attraction in cusco and day by day the number of visitors is increasing and the publications of this place are going viral. it has all the natural beauty with dreamlike views and therefore will continue to increase the number of visitors which helps to diversify and not saturate machu picchu.
A paradise! Discovered only a few years ago, it is a natural beauty that lies more than 5,000 metres above sea level, which makes it difficult for visitors to reach it.
It is important to take the altitude seriously as it can be a major problem.
Our recommendation is to stay at least three days in Cusco and to take advantage of these days with tours such as Sacred Valley, Cusco City Tour, Machu Picchu and others that are at lower altitudes.
The best months for sightseeing are between april and november, but nevertheless it could be very good also in the rainy months when the humidity intensifies the colours of the mountain.
The best thing to do is to combine the Rainbow Mountain with the Red Valley as it is an hour's walk away and really worth it.
