The Lurin Valley Photo Tour covers the lower lands of the valley.
The Peruvian coast is commonly filled with deserts and valleys, in fact, Lima city was founded beside the Rimac River and before becoming into the big city it is today, it was a huge green valley and its natural borders were the southern and northern deserts today disappeared.
We will do some short hikes, so get ready to have an active day.
WHAT KIND OF PHOTOS WE DO?
Landscapes and some birds, insects and flowers.
WHEN TO GO?
The trip can be done for the whole year, except for months with strong rains in the Andes (not every year), usually from January to March.
Leave the hotel at 6:00 a.m. We will drive east. First stop to drink a coffee or take a quick meal at Cieneguilla.
Then, we will continue climbing to get to Antioquia and Cochahuayco villages to shoot at the streets of the village and make a short hike by the local Inca Trail. We may lunch here.
We leave Antioquia and we start to drive back to Lima, on the way back we will stop in Cieneguilla stopping at the ruins of Huaycan to have a visit there.
We will continue driving back arriving to Pachacamac Valley. Depending the season we will hike along a path with an open view of the valley or we will hike at the green area known as fog oases.
Once finished this stage we will be ready to go back to the city.
WHAT TO TAKE?
Trekking shoes are better, plus trekking poles if you want some help to keep in balance.
We have different climates, depending on the season it may be very wet at the bottom, and very sunny once we climb. Ask for recommendations before.
Food: just some snacks and water.
0 to 1500 mt.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
The hikes are around one to two hours at photographer’s speed.
OPTION: If you are not able to walk outdoors, we will try to customise it to avoid long hikes and trying to find spots with the support of the car.
