FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

1.- I am just one person, can I join some group tour?

Yes, you can, we have departures every day, feel free to decide when to go.

2.- We don’t like to go in a big group, can we arrange a private tour?

Yes you can, our group tours go with 12 to 15 people, but if you want, you can also arrange a private tour, we have different rates for it depending on how many people you are.

3.- I will travel with my family, we have two 60 and 65 people, do you think, can they make it?

We had people on this tour from 70 and 75 , the tour is hard for the altitude, if they usually walk, they can do it, but this tour has medium to hard difficulty if you think they are not to fit to do it, we recommend taking a Private tour, that will be a perfect plan to do the tour quite easily and smoothly.

4.- We don’t like to walk, do you think that I can go all the way on horses?

No, the route is very steep, that is why the local campesinos only rent those to go up, but they don’t take you to the top, there is a short part you must walk.

5.- How about my luggage, can I take all my staff?, or where can I store it?

As this tour is only for 1 day we recommend taking only small backpacks, The rest of your stuff you can store at your accommodation in Cusco, All the Hotels have storage if you book the night for your way back, you can leave your stuff there, another option is that you can leave your stuff in our office, in the two options you don’t need to pay anything extra.

6.- What is the best season to hike to Humantay Lake?

The best season to hike to the Humantay Lake is generally from May to September, since the weather is sunny and there is little chance of rain. On the contrary, if you prefer to visit the lagoon with less tourists, the rest of the year is for you, but keep in mind the rains and lusher and greener landscapes.

7.- How far in advance should I book the Humantay Lake Trek?

It is recommended to book the Hike Humantay Lake at least three weeks in advance to secure your spot, especially during Cusco’s high tourist season. However, in the less crowded months you can book at least one month in advance to guarantee availability.

8.- Should I prepare myself physically for the hike?

Yes, it is advisable to prepare yourself physically before trekking to the Humantay Lake, as it is a bit challenging, as a preparation you can hike or exercise your legs, endurance and cardiovascular exercises.

9.- Do I need extra money for the hike?

It is advisable to bring extra money for the hike to Humantay lake to cover unforeseen expenses, buy souvenirs or pay for additional services that may arise during the tour. As another tip we recommend you to bring cash and preferably soles, since most of the locals only accept soles and not dollars.

10.-Is there wifi during the hike?

No, in most of the trail you will not find wifi or internet, only in some points such as restaurants you will be able to have connection.

EXCELLENT SERVICE!

My experience with Inka Times was amazing. I did the city tour of Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Humantay Lake. The service is extremely personalized from Buenos Aires they made a video call to explain everything to me, and from here there was constant communication by WhatsApp and in person. Naysha and Mauro’s attention was exceptional and they are great professionals and super attentive. The guides Ivan, John W and Elvis were excellent, they were all very knowledgeable, answered our questions and guided diverse groups in a professional and fun way.

I definitely recommend this company if you are planning a trip to Cusco, they take care of everything and all the tours were really great!
