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.

Paul was very keen to explain to everyone that the buffet served all the local delicacies including the spicy stuffed peppers and alpaca meat. We had tried everything before. Alpaca was served in two ways, one in stew and the other in ribs - the ribs were awesome and they were a favourite with everyone for seconds and for ...
... path. We had a few cuts, scaper, splinters & ripped clothes but we were fine. Zoe also donated her sunglasses to the Canyon as they camp out of her pocket on one ticky bit and disappeared. It was the most tricky/scary section of walking we have done.
A further 3hrs of steep uphill got is to the top of the canyon and we were greeted by spectacular views across the canyon. At one point we could see both ...
