Our ViaVia is located in the magnificent colonial city of Ayachucho, at 2800 meters in the Andes.
The city has an historic centre with over 33 colonial churches, mansions and a beautiful Plaza de Armas .
Moreover, it is known for its abundance of handicraft (fabrics, ceramics, stone sculpture of Huamanga) and its richness in music and folk festivals. Visit the craft market of Sha Negaso or the central market 28 Julio to find crafts and local products. Do not miss out on the Museum of Memory to find out more about the 1980s conflict. Take a look at the retablo museum Casa Museo Joaquín López Antay or follow one of their workshops.
In addition to its beautiful landscapes, Ayacucho and its surrounding area offer culture, history, adventure sports and much more:
Quinua (1 hour)
On the road to Quinua you can find the archaeological remains of Wari and its museum. This heartwarming village of Quinua is inhabited by some masters of ceramic crafts. In Quinua’s pampa you can admire the obelisk, which represents the battle of independence, and you can discover the eucalyptus forest by horse. When you leave Quinua, you can visit the thermal baths of Colpa in Acos Vinchos, where you can make a beautiful walk towards a waterfall.
Huanta (1 hour)
La Esmeralda de los Andes (The Emerald of the Andes) is another way to refer to the charming city of Huanta. On the road you can visit the Pikimachay cave where you can find the remains of the first humans. Huanta is known for its pleasant climate, ancient mansions and the Convento Sagrado Corazón de Jesús and its watchtower. Don’t forget to taste the “cuy chactado” (guinea pig) in one of the Luricocha resorts.
Bosque de Piedras de Huaraca (1.5 hours)
This wonderful place is located at an altitude of 4000 metros. Here you can find hundred of rock formations of incongruous shapes, which are believed to be shaped by the wind and rain. After a fascinating walk, you will reach a lagoon, ideal for a picnic or camping.
Aguas Circamarca (2,5 hours)
Circamarca’s clear blue water has been a well-kept secret. Be one of the first to discover its dazzling lagoons and peaceful nature.
Vilcashuaman (2,5 hours)
Vilcashuaman treasures a colonial church built on top of the Inca ruins. Half an hour away you will find the archaeological Intihuatana complex, which is located next to the Pumacocha lagoon. Its most surprising feature is the bathroom infrastructure, made out of polished stones and perfectly connected to a system of canals for the circulation of water, which is still in operation. The woods of Puya raimondii (el bosque de puyas de Raymondi) in Titankayocc are also definitely worthwhile.
Cangallo (2 hours)
Half an hour before arriving at Cangallo, you stumble upon Huahuapuquio’s carbonated water, where you can swim in a pool with spectacular views. The Qorimaqma waterfall is a stunning cascade, which squeezes itself through natural rock walls.
Razhuilca (2 hours)
Apu Razuhuillca is located in the north of the Huanta region, north of Ayacucho. The mountain has a height of more than 5000m and used to be always covered in snow. However, recently the snow has disappeared … The mountain hides rivers and lagoons, like the Razuhuillca lagoon, but also llamas and alpacas that enjoy nature’s peacefulness.
