To ensure the continuation of tourism and adventure in one of Peru's most emblematic destinations, the Regional Government of Cusco, in collaboration with the Mollepata District Municipality, has announced significant news for travelers eager to explore the region's natural wonders.

Following the temporary closure of the pedestrian path to Humantay Lake and Salkantay Mountain due to damages caused by the recent months' rains, authorities have worked to offer a solution. They announce opening a new alternative pedestrian route to ensure safe access for national and international visitors wishing to explore these tourist destinations.

They also reported the installation of ropes and informative signs along the path and seats at strategic points, thus facilitating a more comfortable journey for tourists. These improvements reflect the local authorities' commitment to the safety and well-being of visitors and underscore the effort to maintain access to these natural treasures, even in the face of climatic challenges.

It is worth mentioning that the rainy season in Cusco has not yet concluded, so visitors are urged to stay informed and prepared for variable weather conditions.
