You’ll depart from Cusco and you’ll have breakfast served before setting out on a hike that takes you to a soaring height of 13,779 feet (4200 m) above sea level (your guides have an oxygen tank if the altitude makes you feel woozy).

When you arrive, you’ll have a breathtaking view of icy cold, clear water of the lake. You’ll also get to see the flora and fauna that only exist at this altitude. After you’re happy with your photographs of this natural wonder, you’ll return to the basecamp at Mollepata for lunch.
