TravelPod Member ReviewsKillawasi Lodge Yanque
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.

Even with a bit of speed from the downhill and heaps of gears to drop down to, the thin air at this altitude was a test for everyones lungs.

We got up at 5.30am to begin the long 16km hike out of the canyon to get our bus back to Arequipa. We were lucky that for about the first day in a long time it was cloudy so the sun was beating down on us for the climb. We made good time until we reached part of the track that had disappeared due to a huge landslide. We either had to attempt to jump across a sheer section that was still falling away for attempt a long ...
... end up becoming a good friend and spending 3 days with us.
We took 2.5hrs to hike the 7km & 1300m of vertical down to the bottom of the canyon as it was very steep, incredibly hot & the track was full of loose scree, stones and debris. We were in a desert and the heat was oppressive despite the altitude. We arrived at the bottom of the Canyon to Sangalle which means "Oasis" which was a series of campsites and small bungalows in a ...
