Something not right?

Description

This is now the end of the road. Only some locals are allowed to drive through the gate. Also all the tour busses have to park here.
Camping is for free and is allowed on the big parking lot. Toilets are available and were open all night.
It's an additional easy 1.3 km to walk to the trailhead. It took us around 1,5 hours for the complete hike to the laguna. The first tourist groups arrived at around 9:30 at Humantay Lake. The lake itself is completely in the sun at around 9am. But the mountain wall behind it only at around 10am.

Latest Check-Ins

Camped here. No charge, bathrooms open at night and free, during the day they cost 1sol. ALSO! WE LEFT OUT ROOF TOP TENT SET UO SO IF COULD DRY WHILE WE HIKED, WHEN WE GOT BACK SOME HAD BEEN IN OUR TENT! Everyone denied entering the tent or seeing anyone do so. The bathroom girl changed her story saying that one of the drivers was trying to see if we were up in the tent to ask us to move the park, but she insisted the no one entered the tent, which we know is a lie because they left the main door zipper wide open. Nothing was stolen because before we left we put it all in the car just in case.

Free parking to stay for the night before fo to the laguna humantay. Toilets for free.

Tourist car arrived at 7h30/8h to go to the laguna.

We did the black sendero in maps.me and it's perfect because all the tourist go to the white sendero in maps.me :)
