landscape of the Andes. After stopping at the highest point (4900 m) to view the volcanoes and snow capped mountains, you descend to Chivay (3600 m) for lunch and go to your hotel. In the afternoon you visit the nearby hot springs and swim if you want.

Day 2 : Early departure to drive along the beautiful Colca Valley with 6000 Ha. of terraces formed by pre-inca civilisations.
Because  the different levels in the valley produce a micro-climate, a greater variety of crops are grown here.
