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.

... guy across the aisle from us was going nuts by this point. So - four hours into our 3-hour journey we arrived in the valley that houses Chivay. A naturally frustrated crowd of local people wanting to take the bus back had to be vigorously persuaded to let us off. Our first objective on disembarking was to try to secure a ticket for our onward travel to Puno on Saturday. We didn't make any progress - especially not in broken Spanish. So ...
... seen on the the trip and we should definitely take it.She didn't need much persuading and we eagerly heaved our bags into the beautiful room.
In the afternoon we walked out of the town in search of some Inca ruins. We walked up and down the hills, through vegetable fields and across bridges, taking an abundance of pictures of the spectacular views on the way. After reaching the ruins, we continued our walk in search of some hot springs ...
... two was action packed and started off brilliant with some amazing German style pancakes with bananas and chocolate sauce drizzled over the top. See the picture attached for the kitchen that turned out this product for 15; simple living with serious talent. With full bellies we were ready to continue deeper into the canyon. We had one ridge to climb over, then we headed into civilization. We walked through ...
