We stopped at Ancasmarca and hiked up to the old Inca granaries and met some ladies who were selling Alpaca scarfs so I bought one! Drove through the Lares pass up to 14,500 ft and made it to the small village of Choquecancha. We walked part way up the hillside to a cute spot where we stopped for a delicious lunch! Our favourite dish was a stuffed pepper (stuffed with Quinoa/spices and served with a light crunchy topping – delicious!)
We then continued up the hill to some ruins for a lookout of the town square (found in the photo by the cross)
We finished the day at the stunning Huacahuasi lodge where I tried out their lovely yoga room followed by delicious dinner and a private jacuzzi! Mountain Lodges of Peru runs a smooth operation!
