Day 1 – Chivay to Puno

We start the journey in Chivay, which is the capital city of the Province of Caylloma and is located at about 3600 meters above sea level. It is well-known for its hot springs, dances, and traditional customs, as well as the awe-inspiring Colca Canyon…Near Chivay and at around 4800 meters above sea level is Patapampa, which is the highest point of our tour between Colca Valley (Chivay) and Puno. This altitude makes Patapampa a natural outlook point where visitors can see a series of volcanoes and snow-covered mountains such as Sabancaya, Ampato, and Mismi, where the origin of the Amazon River is located, which has a length of around 6800 km to its mouth on the Atlantic Ocean

In Patapampa, it is possible to find stones that are piled on top of each other by travelers and local residents. It is part of a ritual related to rest and strength to continue with the trip. It is also believed to provide protection, health and permission to enter somewhere new…Going on with the journey; we cross over Chucura Volcano, where we can see a number of small volcanoes between ichu-covered plains. Then we go on our way to Pampa Cañahuas, which is part of Aguada Blanca National Park, a wildlife reserve for South American camelids such as the vicuña, which has been hunted almost to extinction due to its fine and soft wool..So, in this place visitors can see vicuñas in complete freedom, in the wild and without the fear they feel in captivity then we can see the Great Imata Stone Forest from a distance and after that we reach our next stop, Lagunillas Lake, which is located in the Department of Puno at about 4174 meters above sea level. This is a good place to appreciate more of the region’s fauna, which consists of ajoyas, chocas and especially flamingos. We finish our tour in Puno, which is built on Lake Titicaca’s shore, where visitors will find a number of tourist attractions like the Uros floating Islands, Taquile Island, sillustani’sTombs and more.
