  • From lima to Yauyos are 8 hours if they come by lunahuana, the road can get you dizzy a little, it is always good to carry bags if affect you, remember that the nor yauyos cochas is 3500 meters above sea level, so if you suffer from altitude buy "sorocchipill", taken every 8 hours. He best hosting is "them breezes", sometimes not arrives very well the signal of cell and is impossible to find wifi. The landscape is incredible, the walk through the town of miraflores is one of the best, nor yauyos cochas makes quite cold so takes a good mountain jacket. Unfortunately it is not easy to reach if you don't own mobility, but there are enough agencies that take you on weekends from lima.

  • Start this adventure together with a partner of the University! (an adventure to get to the place, greatly improving access to this beautiful town is missing. Arriving at Yauyos, same backpack hoisting hand who could lead us to Huancaya since there is no mobility after 14:00 hours, (unless it was my situation when you travel). Passed by a beautiful Lagoon: "Papacocha" immense and of water crystal clear. Arriving at the village, we consulted at the office of tourism (it's Sernamp) and US East where we could stay the night. There are many houses hosting that are very cozy, you invite to participate in their experiences daily (not me forget of the lonchecito in the square of weapons with them cachangas, delicious!) to the day following, met to 3 guys of another University, and together us ventured to go all it book, coming to Vilca, the forest of the love, and their annexes. Recommended for travel between the months of April to September, dry season!

  • The reserve has beautiful landscapes and are dazzled, go visit him involves disconnect from the city, technology and immerse yourself in the adventure to the outdoors, hiking, boat rides and eat trout in different varieties. There are a couple of guesthouses with certain amenities and others (the majority) that offer the basics, but everything is part of the package and I was happy to learn about this beautiful place.
