  • The ride is tiring, but worth it. One of the few ride options in Arequipa you can do in a single day, that is, without having to camp out. Toro Muerto is amazing. First time I had the opportunity to take a closer look at cave drawings. I was impressed. Just found it regrettable that the Government does not bother to preserve the site. There's a lot of regulation for the visit. Only a local resident tries to take care of the archaeological site. As a consequence, we find not only trash all over the place, but graffiti on the rocks that spoil the historic heritage. I hope that more people visit the site and do this same type of criticism for we don't lose this important treasure of the history of Peru. Ride performed by the company Waiky Adventours semiprivada form (two couples). Very nice guide! Tip: bring lots of water, because it is very hot in the scene, almost desert. Use suitable shoes for walking in soft sand.
