Pacha Hills

The Pachacamac hills photo trip covers the lower lands of Lurin River, south from Lima city. The trip takes us by some easy hiking trails to explore amazing landscapes of the valley and hills that only in months of august-september become green because of the drizzle and low temperature, the rest of the year they may be totally dry.

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOS WE DO?
Landscapes and in winter more birds and flowers.

WHEN TO GO?
The trip can be done the whole year as a half day trip. 
From July to October it may be wet or muddy, but is the time with more wild life.

WHAT TO TAKE?
Trekking shoes are better, plus trakking poles if they help you to keep in balance. in winter the ground becomes a bit wet.
Basically in summer (feb-mar) must use sunscreen and fresh clothes with higher temperatures of 30C, during winter (aug-sep) long sleeves and a windvest for temperatures of 13C.
It doesn´t rain too much but in winter it can be helpful an extra layer for rain or cold.
Food, just some snacks and water.
