Day 2 - 3

Early in the morning we go to the bus station to go to the city of Nasca, home of the enigmatic Nasca Lines, it is recommended to bring some kind of snack since the trip does not include food. We will arrive in the afternoon and we will have time to rest. Nazca is the site of one of the world's greatest archaeological mysteries, the Nazca Lines. From the ground we can make out very little; for the best views of the Nazca Lines, you’ll want to take an optional flight over them in a small fixed-wing plane.
The next day will be a bit crazy, we will start the day visiting the Chauchilla cemetery, one of the oldest necropolises that is located on the outskirts of Nasca, here we will be able to appreciate some of the crafts that this culture produced. Later you will have the option of flying over the Nasca lines, a 30-minute trip that will show you these incredible figures which are located in the desert near the city. REMEMBER THAT THIS ACTIVITY IS OPTIONAL AND SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS.
Flights over the Nazca lines are not recommended for those with a weak stomach. Planes turn sharply to facilitate viewing of the lines. Several local operators offer flights over the lines and there have been safety issues in the past. AROUND cannot guarantee the safety of any of the flights, your tour leader can recommend some operators that are safer than others according to our assessment. Your leader is specifically prohibited from recommending or assisting booking this activity through any other operators. At night we catch the long but quite comfortable night bus to Arequipa.

Peru’s second most important city after Lima, Arequipa maintains a traditional colonial style and more laid back pace in comparison with the capital. Spend the day in stunning Arequipa. Perhaps walk around the main plaza with its lovely cathedral, many cafes and eateries. You may like to visit the Andean Sanctuaries Museum in Arequipa, which houses Peru’s famous ‘Ice Maiden’, the Inca mummy of a girl who died in the 1440s. There’s also the Monasterio de Santa Catalina, a 16th century monastery which only accepted women from well-to-do Spanish families. These nuns grew infamous for their luxurious lifestyles, each one having her own servant, splurging on fine products and enjoying frequent parties.

Next day you’ll travel about 5 hours by minivan to the town of Chivay. Along the way, you’ll see llamas, alpacas and vicunas – not sure how to differentiate between these adorable creatures? Your tour leader will explain the differences between them. You’ll also stop for breaks, photo opportunities and to try some local coca tea, on the way we will stop at the highest point on the tour at Patapama (4800 meters above sea level) before descending to your destination of Chivay. Enjoy a break for lunch in town later we will go to the hotel. From here you can either spend the evening soaking in the baths, dining on llama steak at a nearby restaurant or seeing some live Andean music at a peña (local bar).

Next morning you will visit the Colca Canyon, more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, the Colca has some breathtaking views. Here you’ll see terraced crops that have been cultivated since pre-Inca times by local villages. This is also the home of the Andean condor. Witness one of the world’s largest flying birds soar above and below you from a prime viewing point above the canyon. We will get back to Chivay for a lunch break before we head back to Arequipa, at night we will take out night bus to Cusco.

Special Information
When stopping off at Patapama, you’re likely to experience some shortness of breath. This is nothing to worry about as it’s a short stop and the bus will quickly descend to lower altitude. Remember to prepare for altitude sickness before the trip.
