Just a 40-minute drive from Chivay, the peaceful town of Yanque sits in the Colca Canyon. The town's 2,500 citizens are predominantly descendants of the indigenous Quechua people, and many of the attractions in Yanque revolve around cultural tourism and performances, with traditional dances for new visitors, colorful tapestries and other woven goods to buy, and locals posing for photographs in native dress. A set of museums serves the same purpose of cultural preservation and commercialization, while other places to visit in Yanque lie out in the wilder surrounding areas, with ruins, vistas, and hot springs among them.

Head back to the main regional road for a selection of simple bed and breakfasts and small hotels.
