breakfast and lunch included, an almost 2-hour hike up a tiring trail and the option of renting a horse, which I don't recommend if you're not used to riding a horse, the guides pick you up at the top of the mountain at noon, when it starts to close the park, you don't have to go up running, there's time, the tour and the guides were great, but they only get in touch the day before, those who suffer from anxiety can take heart. I don't recommend it for people who suffer from altitude or are sedentary, because the walk is very long and if you reach the top at noon, it's time to return and you can't enjoy the place, very important recommendation, very firm shoes for trails, nothing flip flops or flat soles

Beautiful views but it is a trip only for people with good condition (there is an option to ride a horse for a charge). There are two meals in Peruvian style: breakfast and lunch in form of buffet. Guide was good. Organisation was really poor. We've paid for trip with pick-up from the hotel and someone from organization team should contact us 24 hours before the start. Noon did it... After we contacted them by ourselves, it has been confirmed that pick-up will be from the hotel at 4:20. 8 hours before the trip, organization has changed his mind and asked if we can go to the pick-up point... We've not agreed on this as it was dark and we didn't know the city. We've asked again for clarification if someone will pick-up us but with no response. On the day of a trip, we were waiting 40 minutes in front of our hotel but no one arrived. We've called organizator and it seems they forget about us. Thankfully they sent a taxi which drove us to the bus. The beginning of a trip was streasfull

What a wonderful trip! The breakfast is on the smaller side so load up on snacks. The lunch is FABULOUS! The hike is very hard but you can rent a horse/donkey if you’d like. The lake and mountains are beautiful! The tour made everything so easy and informative. Definitely recommend
