The first point where we will stop will be the YANAHUARA viewpoint then VOLCANOES VIEWPONIT and Chilina valleythen we will continue to CANTERAS of AÑASHUAYCO.
  • Currently it is in operation, the stonemasons perform their work from very early; in the place we will be able to appreciate an immense canyon with farallones (walls of ignimbrita) that have several meters of height, formed by the extraction for the formation of the Ashlars.
  • Then we will move to the Quebrada de Culebrillas, which is 30 minutes away from Añashuayco.
  • Arriving at this point we will make a walk of approximately 20 minutes inside the small canyon formed by the passage of water, which has walls of 15 to 20 meters, while we enter it the walls of the canyon are increasing in height. At the end of the walk we can see petroglyphs made by the Wari culture more than a thousand years ago. Before returning to the city we will observe the Apachetas which are stone formations placed one on top of the other that are a symbol of gratitude towards nature and also attraction of good luck which cause a mystical sensation.
