  • Huancaya Nor Yauyos - Cochas is a very good landscape reserve. In it there is nothing to envy from a National Geographic documentary. The dishes range from 6 to 20 soles cuy (guinea pig) being the most expensive dish. The climate is dry and cold, so winter clothes is very important. Here you will be disconnected from the technology though if you can receive calls (Movistar).

  • Huancaya is a small quiet village located 3554msnm in the Lima region, about 341 km of the capital, and hides a wonderful work of nature, but their access is so complex that multiplies it the feeling of reward. Travel is quite longer than Google Maps tells you, it is from a certain point, a trail road. From Lima part very early if you want to get the same day and enjoy. 1 hour 30' to Cerro Azul, where is the junction for San Vicente de Cañete where I recommend you recharge your car to full fuel tank. You will pass Lunahuaná passes the 3 hours of your home, here the road is asphalted. Leaving Lunahuana, the road becomes trail. Then, several villages were peep: Zuniga, Huayllampi, Cotahuasi, Pacayan, Canchán, here you must be around 4 o'clock, Capillucas, Putinza, Magdalena, then you'll find a beautiful lagoon, follows Vitis and finally Huancaya. If you're stopping to admire the beautiful landscapes, Huancaya you will have reached about 5 hours from Canchán. Perhaps a few hours from Lima. The journey is not easy, it gets close to cliffs and narrow at times. The sacrifice, is worth the reward is a marvel of indescribable nature. A set of staggered falls where waters are poured. You are looking for to the Porter of the city, Victor; your work is very good, he is in charge of cleaning around the village. You'll see it pretty clean. He is a super guy who will help you find a good place to spend the night. You can camp in certain areas. Spend the night here, observing the stars. * Don't forget to bring a tent and sleeping in heat, flashlight, something to light a bonfire. This village venera trout, the best food source provided by the Cañete River and date a dip there at noon, its cold turquoise-emerald waters will make you well. You can see birds like the condor. It will improve the tourism to this beautiful place, when they improve the access road.
