Description

Embark on an unforgettable journey as you venture 30 kilometers outside the city to kickstart a day of discovery. The first stop is a rendezvous with history at the iconic Chataquila Church, a silent witness to the tumultuous battles that once raged over the fate of indigenous leader Tomas Katari. Just 50 meters from the church, a 2-hour hike commences, guiding you along the lofty path of a pre-Hispanic trail. As you ascend, you'll be treated to awe-inspiring vistas that unveil the stunning landscape in all its glory. Immerse yourself in the world of medicinal plants, encountering the likes of muña and wira wira, and unlocking their ancient secrets. This panoramic trek culminates in the charming village of Chaunaca, a testament to the enduring spirit of the land. Following this invigorating hike, a convenient transport whisks you away to a highlight of the journey—the enigmatic Maragua Crater. Here, nature's palette intermingles with the vibrancy of Jalq’a village agriculture, painting a truly magical scene. Step into the heart of local life as you visit artisan homes, where traditional textile craftsmanship comes to life before your eyes. Don't miss the Santa Ana Viewpoint, the poignant Cemetery, and the awe-inspiring Garganta del Diablo, each weaving tales of the community's deep-rooted beliefs. Savor a delectable Box Lunch against this picturesque backdrop before embarking on a 25-minute ride from the crater to the next leg of the adventure. Set foot on a path that leads to the mystical Niñu Mayu community, a realm where the footprints of prehistoric giants—the dinosaurs of the Cretaceous era—are imprinted for eternity. Spend approximately 2 hours exploring these incredible fossilized traces, a journey through time. As the sun begins its descent, you'll return to the city, your heart and mind brimming with the stories of the land, the echoes of legends, and the resounding footfalls of ages past. This meticulously curated tour isn't just a mere expedition—it's an opportunity to delve into a region's soul, walk in the footsteps of history, and be captivated by the natural and cultural wonders that make this journey truly one for the ages.
