Trekking in Cotahuasi Canyon Reviewed Tour: Southern Peru Trekking & Adventure
5 - Excellent
  • Jennifer Fey
  • From Australia
“I was very keen to trek in Cotahausi Canyon, an isolated area 8 hours travel by bus from Arequipa, and well away from general tourist attractions. I had contacted many trekking companies from Arequipa and Cusco but most were only interested in taking me to Colca Canyon, a popular and closer option. Through Bookmundi, I was lucky enough to contact James Mackender, Unu Raymi Expeditions, who was willing to look into the possibility of arranging flexible trekking options for me from the township of Cotahuasi, in Cotahuasi Canyon. James also organised the guide from Arequipa as well as accommodation, meals, bus and plane fares.

I travelled with my guide in a bed bus from Arequipa to Cotahausi and at 5:00 am the next morning we caught a collectivo to start the first trek. All travel to the distant little villages in the Canyon was by local collectivos and the guide used his knowledge of the timetables to catch the collectivos on their return journeys. Travelling with local people was an extremely interesting glimpse into everyday life.

One morning we caught a bus at 3:00 am to travel to Puyca to walk up to the Wari ruins high above the village at the Archaeological site of Maucallacta, 3925 metres: such a peaceful, pre Inca site high up against the heights of the Canyon overlooking ancient terraces that swept down to the bottom of the valley. There was even a stone bathing area that we recognised as an Inca addition.

Cotahausi Canyon is extremely beautiful, remote, diverse and unspoilt with many interesting attractions to walk to including the impressive tall Cactus Forest and Sepia Falls. One very cold morning we travelled to a village called Huaynacotas high up on the sides of the Canyon. It had snowed the night before and a volcanic crater and the ridges above the snow line were dusted with white. After walking along the ridge road to enjoy the view along the canyon, we took five hours to walk on a narrow track down to the river and then on to Luicho to splash in the local thermal pools.

Cotahuasi Canyon is an amazing place to trek and I am very grateful to James and my guide that I was given the opportunity to have such an authentic experience.”
The tour operator responded on :
“Hola Jenny! Many thanks for your detailed review, it was a real pleasure to have you with us and helping you to plan and operate your trip. I'm absolutely delighted we could setup Cotahuasi Canyon for you, because it is remote but also a really beautiful place. The thrill of the adventure is what we enjoy the most and knowing we helped you get the most from your trip is awesome. Thanks Jenny, I know we'll keep in touch and would be great to see you back someday!”

Incredible Adventure Reviewed Tour: Trek & Climb: Nevado Qampa
5 - Excellent
  • Cedric Caldarera
“I really enjoyed climbing Nevado Qampa. This was a new experience for me and I am delighted to have chosen Unu Raymi Expeditions to help me with this incredible adventure. Thank you to James & Eduardo for this beautiful ascent.”
The tour operator responded on :
“Bonjour Cedric! It was an incredible adventure to Nevado Qampa, merci beaucoup!! I hope we will see you back in Peru one day soon. Please keep in touch, best James”

Cusco - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Capital of the Inca Empire, a visit to Cusco transports you back to the mysterious ways of the ancient culture of Incas and invites you to explore the Sacred Valley and the irresistible Machu Picchu. As you take a tour of Cusco, you will see the Spanish Conquest has left its colonial influence on the city. Despite the historical conflict of Cusco, the city is a welcoming and comfortable base from which to explore the intriguing world of the Incas, and the people who still call Cusco home.

Travel Highlights

  • La Catedral is a 16th century construction built atop an old Inca palace. It’s a great place to view some Colonial art.
  • Before you head out to Machu Picchu or other sites, visit the Museo Inca to gain some background knowledge on this ancient cosmic culture.
  • The Salinas or salt pans may not sound terribly exciting, but the sight of such an ancient practice brings into focus how much of Cusco still uses Inca traditions to this day.
  • Machu Picchu, the reason many people take a trip to Cusco, is a bucket-list activity like no other. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in the world.
  • The Moray terraces are an impressive display of Inca wisdom. Each with its own microclimate, it’s believed the terraces were used to experiment with crop growth.

Travel Tips

  • Taking a picture with a local dressed in traditional Andean clothing will incur a fee.
  • Coca leaves is a natural way to combat altitude sickness but is not a substitute to medicine such as Diamox.
  • Cusco is very walkable, but go slow while you adjust to the altitude.
  • Like anywhere with a lot of tourists, there is crime in Cusco so take precautions.
  • If you plan to complete the Inca trail, make sure you have any necessary permits well in advance.
  • A Boleto Turistico grants you entrance to 16 attractions for one fee.
  • Rainy season is from December to March, but always pack layers no matter the month.
