Yanque

(3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews for 6 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, nature
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.

Where to stay

An established cultural tourism spot for groups and solo adventurers, the small town of Yanque offers comfortable accommodations for visitors, but in relatively small supply. Guesthouses providing bed and board represent the most common of style of accommodations in town; choose from newly built and old, characterful options. Cross Rio Colca, and you'll find a couple of eco-lodges around the hot springs, offering spa facilities, bars, and onsite restaurants. Head back to the main regional road for a selection of simple bed and breakfasts and small hotels.
