Through the laying of stones, an offering is offered to the Pachamama thanking him for having successfully reached the lagoon, as well as asking him to accompany us on our trip. The Humantay Lagoon is a place that impacts with its immensity, footprints and colors in the landscape, which makes it one of the must-see tourist destinations in the bowels of Peru. Humantay Lake is a natural beauty tour in the Salkantay region of Cusco. It is believed that the lagoon conserves the sacred waters of the Apu Humantay that irrigate the fields in the area. The Humantay lagoon is highly respected by the inhabitants of the region due to its location and its great importance for its importance for the subsistence economy of the locals.
