Humantay Lake is a glacial lake located in the Andes Mountains of Peru, near the city of Cusco. It is situated at an altitude of 4,200 meters (13,780 feet) above sea level and is surrounded by towering peaks and snow-capped mountains. The lake is fed by meltwater from the nearby Humantay Glacier, which contributes to its stunning turquoise color.

The lake is considered sacred by the local indigenous people, who believe that it holds spiritual and therapeutic powers. Many travelers come to Humantay Lake for its breathtaking beauty, and it is a popular destination for trekking, hiking, and camping. The journey to the lake involves a challenging hike through the stunning Andes landscape, but the journey is well worth the effort for the breathtaking views and the chance to immerse oneself in the natural beauty of the region.
