The lodge is lovely, looking out over the valley with incredibly comfortable rooms, tea anytime and a restaurant serving great food. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We didn't take up the offer of a guided walk as we preferred to relax, enjoy the hammocks and just wander round the small town. We arranged a package with Killawasi including a guided service from Arequipa and a tour in the Colca Canyon for which we had an excellent guide, then onward service to Puno. Highly recommended and do stay 2 nights if your schedule permits.

We had one ridge to climb over, then we headed into civilization. We walked through ...
... contain our anticipation for the hot springs, we quickly changed into our swimsuits, bought two large Arequipina beers and walked down the steep path to the river. We were greeted by our fellow trekkers and jumped into the hottest of the concrete baths right next to the river, which is were we would spend the next three hours chatting, laughing and attempting to not get devoured by sandflies. The setting was idyllic, with the flowing torrents of the river rushing past ...
... never came up quite high enough for a good view. The sad truth is that their numbers are dwindling and they are becoming harder to find. A lot of this is to do with local quarrying, where dynamite is used and disrupts their nesting areas.
We drove on to the starting point of our trek, opposite a town called Cabanaconde, where our guide, Nestor, was from. He started with a run through of the do’s and don’t’s and a history of the area ...
