Peru - Off the beaten track

An excursion to one of the least visited locations in the whole of Peru, the central highlands of Huanuco , Huancayo, Chanchamayo and Huancavelica. You shall visit the marvelous Kotosh, a 5,000 years old culture and one of the earliest signs of civilization in the Americas. The site features a series of pyramid-shaped mounds including a chamber decorated with an adobe sculpture of two pairs of crossed arms, one of the oldest examples of sculptures in the Andes. The tour also includes a visit to Lake Choclococha, where we can see many species of bird including Andean geese and hawk eagles. An authentic Peru Tour which is not only off the beaten track away from tourist traps but is also an opportunity to visit the Real Peru.

ITINERARY
Day 1: Lima

Arrival in Lima, reception and transfer to your hotel.

Day 2: Huanuco

After breakfast, transfer to the bus terminal for the journey to Huanuco. Reception and transfer to your hotel.

Meals: B

Day 3: Kotosh

Free morning to explore Huanuco before a guided visit to Kotosh, just 4 km from this picturesque highland town. Nearly 5,000 years old, Kotosh is one of the earliest signs of civilisation in the Americas. The site features a series of pyramidal-shaped mounds including a chamber decorated with a mud sculpture of two pairs of crossed arms, one of the oldest examples of sculpture in the Andes. Due to the absence of ruins of housing in the area, it is believed that Kotosh was a sacred pilgrimage centre rather than an urban settlement.

Day 4: Huancayo

Bus journey south to the city of Huancayo, capital of the Junin department.

Day 5: Huancayo

Free day to explore the city and its surroundings at your own leisure.

Day 6: Mantaro Valley

Excursion to the Mantaro valley including a trip to the Ocopa convent, which houses one of the largest libraries of all Franciscan convents in Peru.

Day 7: Chanchamayo

Daily excursion to the Chanchamayo valley, the coffee capital of Peru. Here the growers, using age old techniques roast the fine arabica beans into what is widely regarded as the best coffee in Peru.

Day 8: Huancavelica

Fabulous train journey south to Huancavelica on the affectionately named "Macho train". Running alongside the Mantaro river and through some stunning mountain scenery, you will eventually arrive to Huancavelica, a very seldom tourist frequented town. Transfer to your hotel.

Day 9: Huancavelica

A chance to enjoy Huancavelica and her surroundings at your own pace. Perhaps a visit to the petrified forest of Sachapite just outside of the town or just relax in the termal baths near Lircay. The surrounding countryside is littered with many ancient ruins awaiting discovery.

Day 10: Lake Choclococha

Spectacular trip to Lake Choclococha, a huge inland sea across from where lies the remnants of an ancient village. You will have an opportunity to see many species of bird including Andean geese and hawk eagles as well as some vicuñas that come down to drink by the lakeside.

Day 11: Lima

Long trip back to Lima through some unforgettable, rarely-ventured Peruvian countryside. Transfer to your hotel.

Day 12: Lima

Leisurely day with plenty of opportunity for shopping before your transfer to the airport and your return flight home.
