Tour Laguna Humantay
With a mystical air, the lagoon is visited by shamans and tourists from all over the world to leave offerings to the Pachamama, a deity that represents Mother Earth in the Inca culture. By placing stones (apachetas), an offering is offered to the Pachamama thanking her for having reached the lagoon successfully, as well as asking her to accompany them on their journey.
According to the residents, the Humantay mountain is the youngest son of the Apu Salkantay, and they would be in charge of rationalizing and distributing the water that comes down from its snow to the populations that live on the slopes of these impressive snow-capped mountains.
