What to expect
This tour is a rare opportunity to stray off the beaten path and enter the Conchucos, a rugged eastern region of Peru. Upon arrival at the Acopalca Town Center, prepare to experience a spectacular welcome reception complete with traditional music and floral decorations. Then, get introduced to a dedicated tour guide who will let you take a unique peek into rural life at a water mill, organic garden, and fish farm. After a home-cooked lunch, get ready to hike beyond the village and choose to stop by either the Purhuay Lagoon or the Maria Jiray Waterfall. The lagoon, located in Huascaran National Park, is home to exotic species of trout. A stunning multicolored field of native Huaganku orchids surrounds the lagoon, blooming in beautiful shades of white, fuchsia, and yellow. On the other hand, the waterfall rests on the edge of a massive irrigation canal, and at around 100 meters tall, is truly a sight to see. The day then draws to a close as you return to town, receive a special souvenir, and say goodbye. After only a day, you will have had a comprehensive overview of a different way of life and an amazing experience in a hidden gem of Peru!
