Trip Planner: South America / Peru / Arequipa Region / Colca Canyon / Yanque / Historic Sites / Uyo Uyo Archaeological Site
Hike to Uyo Uyo Archaeological Site for Incan ruins and stunning natural views. Climb the relatively easy trail and experience the panoramic views of Colca Canyon along the way. When you reach the top, you will see the semi-restored settlement of an ancient pre-Incan civilization once inhabited the area. See the ruins of houses and streets, with cacti growing from the stone remains. There are signs and explanations in Spanish; but if you're not versed in the language, visit with a guide to help you understand the rich history of the site.
