Learn more about the extraordinary geology and the flora and fauna of Peru from your knowledgeable guide. Soak up the stunning views before you return to Cusco for a refreshing cold chicha drink (a fermented or non-fermented beverage usually derived from maize).

    A lot of fun! Our guide was awesome! The breakfast and lunch were really good (especially lunch) and was a great start and finish to the long day. The ride was actually only 2 hours which was nice BUT it is VERY bumpy so sleeping is kind of tough. We took horses up to the mountain (one way 60 soles or round trip 80 soles) and then walked the last 10 min which was steep. Once you get up there it is well worth it! Up top, there are llamas and alpacas you can take photos with (they are free but you are encouraged to tip 1-2 soles) and food. I HIGHLY recommend you get the fried alpaca and potatoes! We walked the way back which was easy and quick. I recommend you book this trip if you are on the fence about it!
