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.

Our host at B&B walked us to where the hike begins. We started off passing donkeys loaded up followed up by their owner.

The path at times reminded me of the Camino at times, cobble ...
Up bright and early at 430am. Luis, Sylvia and his sister and brother in law all woke up to see us off. Luis and his brother in law took us into Puno in the wee boat in the dark. What a beautiful ride in the dark through the reeds under the stars. So peaceful! When we got to shore Luis had arranged a taxi to take us to the bus station, which he hopped in with us while his brother in law stayed with the boat. We said our goodbyes at the bus station and ...
... quickly realised that was it for the day - a huge bus for just the four of us. Brilliant! We immediately spread out all of our belongings over multiple seats.
The drive from Puno to Chivay, Arequipa Province was about 5 hours in total with a couple of stops along the way to soak up the beautiful landscapes. Our first stop was Laguna Lagunillas at an altitude just below 4,200m. Despite the ominous clouds looming over the lake, which muted the colours of the ...
... with Diana at Colca Trek in Arequipa who informed us that due to recent seismic activity hiking and camping where currently not being offered by respectable tour companies. They did however have another 2 day option.
